Year 1 enjoy a day in a “Spa”

These days, in Year 1B, we are learning about how we can look after ourselves within the topic “How are you?”.

We have transformed our play-role area into a Wellness centre and spa and we have been taking care of each other by giving each other foot and hand massages and practicing relaxation techniques.

Children, just like adults, benefit greatly from consistent and deliberate self-care activities. Even if they are not currently stressed or upset, teaching kids to regularly take care of themselves will help ensure that they have the skills to manage future stressors in healthy and effective ways.
