School Councillor Maisie Thorn here,
Me and my amazing mindfulness team of Eliza Folland, Jorja Harrison, Samuel Oakman and Eveie Thomas are organising a Mindfulness Day that people can take part in from home. This will tie in with Children's Mental Health Week, which begins on 1st February.
Now more than ever, mental health support is needed and we want to help. We plan to collect donations for the mental health charity, Mind, using their online platform: https://www.mind.org.uk/
In Yr 6 this week we have been writing instruction leaflets for Mindfulness exercises. We researched a wide range of exercises, from drawing to baking and meditating to breathing. We chose what represents mindfulness to us and want to share our ideas with the whole Hillcrest Community. We have filmed a video to tell the school about the day ahead.
We have lots of plans, including mindful colouring sheets, to download and a specially made yoga video, suitable for all ages.
We'll be telling you more soon so keep an eye on the Hillcrest Social page and look out for our next video on the Mindfulness page under the Pupils tab.
Maisie and the Mindfulness Team
