Captain Fantastic Mindfulness Workshop

On Thursday, we were very fortunate to welcome Tommy and Ricky from Captain Fantastic to run a mindfulness workshop for us.  These sessions focused on age appropriate mindfulness, wellbeing and resilience for each Key Stage, and were packed with lots of fun and interactive activities.

The children were completely engaged in the games and exercises, and enthusiastically joined in with reflection and discussion at every opportunity. 

The workshop covered self-confidence and how to support each other, with help from orang-utan George, and the groups worked together to perform a magic trick using their ‘superhero power’ of focus and concentration.  The children chased bubbles and thought about trying to calm their minds, using some breathing exercises to relax.  There was a lot of thoughtful dialogue about being open to differences and experiencing different emotions, and a fun game with a rainbow parachute too!

Captain Fantastic will be running 10 after school sessions from 9th January.  If you have any questions for Captain Fantastic please contact info@captain-fantastic.co.uk or 020 8245 9019.
