    Hi,

    I am looking for some good FREE or VERY cheap mindfulness/well being activities I can us with my Year 4 class. The school and ai don't have any spare money but my class and I NEED something!

    Help!

    Share your ideas or places I can find some things.

    When ai find things, I will post them here as well.

    Thanks!

    You can get some really good yoga and meditation resources online. The children love our meditation sessions in particular. The only downside was that one of the parents objected to meditation because of how it links to Buddhism....I know....

    I was going to say colouring in as well! ;)
    Cosmic Yoga is free on YouTube and all of year 4-6 have loved it in my school.

    Mindfulness won't 'cure' bad behaviour or liveliness.

    PSHE useful. There's a link on their website to a report by Sheffield Hallam university showing the benefits.
    If you'd like to try something for yourself, I found Headspace really useful. The first 10 sessions are free!

    Is mindfulness the new brain gym? I can hardly believe teachers can find class time for this latest fad!

    We have jigsaw. It isn't useful for PSHE and certainly isn't anything like what you want as mindfulness.
