Life Skills Week
This Week is our Life Skills Week in School. Our home learning foundation activities this week will therefore be focused on developing our life skills in different ways.
Monday 18th October - Foundation - Mindfulness and Emotional Health.
Mindfulness means paying full attention to something and really noticing what you're doing. Being mindful could help you to pay attention better, stay calm and even feel happier and enjoy things more.
Activity - please choose at least two of the following mindfulness challenges to try:
Listen carefully with your eyes closed to any sounds you can hear. After one minute, open your eyes and write down everything you heard.
Ring a bell or make a lasting noise with another instrument or method. Listen very carefully to the fading sound until you are sure you can no longer hear it.
Listen carefully to a piece of music and draw a line on a piece of paper which matches the feeling created by the music.
Lie comfortably on your back on the floor. Move your attention around your body by tensing and clenching your muscles and then relaxing them. Hunch your shoulders, then let them go. Make your hands into fists then tighten the muscles in your arms before relaxing them. Continue to move around your body repeating this process.
Written Activity - Write a list of 10 things you are thankful for.
