The Y6 Mindfulness Attention Project
Mindfulness involves paying more attention to what is happening right now with an attitude of curiosity and kindness. By learning to focus a little more on what is happening now and how we are feeling we can learn to manage day to day difficulties and enjoy ourselves more.
In particular, the children learn to focus their attention on their breath in class and have the opportunity to practice short guided meditations at home if they wish. The meditations last around ten minutes and ask the children to simply focus their attention on something very simple, such as sensations in their body, or the sounds around them.
