A number of classes have been following the Massage in Schools Programme this term and more classes will be learning about massage in the Spring Term. Here are some quotes from the year 1 and 3 children about how they think the massage movements they have learnt will help them:
“Massage helps me to feel calm and relaxed.”
“I can give my mum a massage if she’s tired.”
“I love giving a massage and receiving a massage. It’s fun and relaxing.”
Mindfulness involves training our attention to experience the present moment with greater curiosity and kindness. This helps us to not only appreciate what is going well, but to respond more skillfully to life’s inevitable challenges.
