Inspire Me: Concentration Boosters!
Children Love Mindfulness!
And teachers love the calm these activities bring after energetic playtimes!
Settling children down to a serious reading session or problem solving in numeracy can be an uphill challenge after a fun-filled playtime of dashing about and chasing games. Not any more at Springhill Primary where teachers use a short mindfulness activity after every break.
The outcome – stunning! Children are ready to settle, listen and concentrate!
“Having our Mindfulness signs on the playground gives us an ideal way to transition from the hurly-burly of playtime and lunchtime to the quiet focus of the classroom and children see the activities as a treat which is a bonus!” - Mrs Smith (Year 5)
“A different child at the end of each break chooses which mindfulness activity we will do before the start of the next lesson. Pencil balancing is the current favourite – it is amazing to see children concentrate so hard and it is overflowing into concentration during lessons – brilliant!” - Miss Church (Year 3)
