In our group times in the Sensorial room we have been continuing with our mindfulness sessions which the children are enjoying. The children were encouraged to use visualisation following a story that they were told about cycling along the road using their legs and then freewheeling down the hills.
During another mindfulness session, the teacher used the bell to create silence and walked around the room chiming the bell continuing the lovely calm ambience. The children were then also given the chance to be the person in control of the bell, and they walked calmly around the room amongst the others. It was a lovely way for the children to participate without becoming over energised.
