Relax Kids

23rd Jun 2017

Our nursery, P1 and P2 children took part in Relax Kids classes with Mrs Fox and Miss Harvey.

This developed their imagination, increased self-esteem and helped them to feel calmer.  The children had great fun and really enjoyed the sessions. They loved the movement and dance, it helped to improve their attention and listening skills.  The children responded well to stretching and breathing exercises. The simple relaxation techniques strongly supported their social and emotional development and helped them to manage their emotions.  

The children enjoyed the peer massage, it encouraged them to be gentle and kind to each other. At the end of each session  the children loved snuggling up on soft blankets and listening to the relaxation story. It helped them to be calmer, happier and relaxed.
