Health and Wellbeing
Deanburn Nursery Class are committed to ensuring children are developing their physical wellbeing. This is done in a variety of ways:
- Daily opportunities to participate in different kinds of play, both indoors and outside.
- Weekly gym slots where we are learning how to move our bodies, exploring how to manage and control it and finding out how to use and share space.
?We are also encouraging children to understand that adopting an active lifestyle is a healthy way to be.
In addition, the children are given opportunities to learn about the importance of keeping ourselves safe and to understand ways to look after ourselves e.g. caring for our teeth.
Brush, brush, brush your teeth...
Mental and emotional wellbeing is also essential to the healthy development of children and one of the ways in which we address this is through the implementation of Mini Me Yoga on a regular basis.
Mini Me Yoga provides yoga and positive thinking products for children. Studies have found that teaching yoga to children helps them learn how to release stress, retain more information and increase confidence and happiness, among other benefits. Positive thinking techniques increase a child's awareness of the power of their own thoughts and give them access to being the author of their own life.
