Year 2 mindfulness session

Year 2 are currently enjoying a mindfulness session with Lynne Wilkes. The session began with a simple exercise of looking at shells. By taking their time to look properly at the detail of the shell the children were able to focus entirely on it… and nothing else.

St Mary’s is committed to embedding mindfulness into our school day, to equip our pupils with the skills and strategies to cope with the stresses and anxieties life can throw at us.

There is evidence to suggest that pupils who have used mindfulness meditation techniques before exams can perform to a higher level.
