Dear Mums & Dads,
Please take a look at our mindful breathing led this afternoon by Bethany.
In addition to mindful breathing, we are now keeping a gratitude journal as a way to reflect upon and celebrate all the good things in our lives. The idea is for 3A to realise that now matter how difficult life can sometimes feel, there is always something to feel grateful about. We usually write twice a week in our gratitude journal. The children are usually given about 10mins to respond to a prompt.
3A has also joined in the 14 weeks kindness challenge by #RandamActofKindness (RAK). This challenge normally resumes on World’s Kindness Day on Nov 13th, which meaningfully and directly follows Remembrance Day, and leads to #RandomActofKindnessWeek later on in February. This week the children are encouraged to be kind to their family and/or community. They have been given a RAK board providing them with ideas (for more ideas check here) and reflection sheets to keep track of their acts of kindness. If you witness a #RandomActofKindness by your child, please capture it on a camera and share it with Ms. Maddy and Ms. B.
If you are interested in mindfulness, consider attending “Let’s Talk About Mindfulness” session on 28 Nov, 8am-9:30 am at LLAC with Cathy Ziengs, MBSR Teacher, Mindfulness Facilitator during which you will explore mindfulness concepts and practices being introduced into school communities to enhance well-being for the students, the teachers. Please wear something comfortable, Cathy will have you do some practices – lots of fun, lots of access to the learning. RSVP
