A healthy mind and body are the foundation to a fun and productive day, this attitude even applies to primary school children.
At School Plus Mansfield, we always ensure to feed the children what they need to start and end the day well, but as of recent we have introduced several activities to relax and prepare the children for their days. This arose as we saw the children getting quite worked up and restless after our exciting morning activities.
However, after some critical reflection on this, we have implemented this helpful and calming end to the morning which has achieved only positive results. The feedback for the morning meditation has been so positive that we have begun increasing the time of this activity from three minutes to five minutes as per request of the children.
