Mindfulness Group: Snow Day ⛄️ Activities

Amidst all of your snow ⛄️ games, your sledging with friends and family, your igloo building and then snuggling up with some hot chocolate ☕️ and a good book ?, why don’t you take a moment of calm and try one of these mindfulness tasks. The Mindfulness Group started practising these on Monday in school. Why don’t you give them a go at home.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy- Talk and Tell Sessions

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the snow ⛄️
I wanted to let everyone know that if you had a Talk and Tell session booked for Wednesday or Thursday of this week and have missed it due to the snow storm, that I will be in touch with you next week to rearrange your appointment. You will not miss out on your Talk and Tell time, it will just be at a different time.
Stay safe and warm and I shall see you next week.
