Paddington's Planting
 

Paddington (our class bear) has been doing some gardening. Although his favourite food is marmalade, he has decided to try something new - herbs!
 

Paddington is very excited to watch his seeds grow, but he needs some help!
Can you think of some of the things that Paddington will need to do to help his seeds to grow?

Religious Education

Mindfullness

The world is an increasingly busy place, even for very young children, and can often seem overwhelming. The ability to step back and create calm, reflective spaces in our lives is beneficial to our mental health.

 

Here are some activities you can do to support your child's well being
 

1. Describing emotions

Sit in a circle with the children and ask them to describe different emotions. How does it feel when they are angry, happy or worried? You could prompt them by creating this visual representation. 
 

2. A sound hunt
‘We’re going on a sound hunt, we’re going to find a loud one, what a beautiful day, what can we hear?’ Go on a trip to a local park or nature reserve. Sit down and ask the children to listen out for different sounds. Ask children to share the sound that they can hear.


3. Looking at clouds

Keep an eye on the weather for this activity, as ideally you need partial cloud cover and a good breeze. Get the children to lie down outside and look up at the clouds (taking care not to look directly at the sun). Ask them to look out for shapes and notice how the clouds change as they move along.

 

4. Bubble balloon game

Blow up some balloons and play the don’t-touch-the-floor game, but focusing on gentle movements. Pretend that the balloons are bubbles that might pop, so you can only tap them delicately.

 

5. Texture bag

Put a selection of objects with different shapes and textures into a bag. Get the children to take turns putting their hands in, feeling one of the objects and describing it to the others (without looking at it) in as much detail as possible.

 

6. Guided relaxation/visualisation

Get the children to lie down on the floor, on comfortable mats. Take them through a guided relaxation exercise (e.g. focusing on all of their muscles in turn) or guided visualisation story (e.g. imagining they are lying on a beach). There are plenty of these available to download online.

 

7. Yoga

Do some research and try some yoga with the children – there are lots of fun moves for preschoolers to practise, for example animal poses. If you’re not confident enough to lead this yourself you could always get a local instructor in (preferably one who is experienced in working with children).

 

8. Mindful breathing

There are several ways of practising mindful breathing with young children. It works best when combined with some kind of action, for example counting off on one hand as you breathe in and the other hand as you breathe out, or putting your hand on your tummy to feel it moving in and out.

 

9. Mind Jar
A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down.

 

10. Stone Stacking

Go for a walk and find some stones to stack. Place them on top of each other to create a tower. This mindfulness activity promotes patience, focus, and a deep stillness of the mind.

 

Engaging in mindfullness activities can help your child to...
 

  • increase their attention span
  • understand and regulate their emotions
  • Manage stress and general well being
  • become more aware of their bodies and their senses
  • build a connection with the natural world
  • develop empathy and compassion for others
