Place2Be is a great charity that has collated a lot of information to help you talk to your children about what is going on at the moment.

Mindfulness and Well Being

Scroll down for the well-being section – lots of nice resources on here.


There are lots of videos and stories on here of varying lengths. We’d suggest choosing one or 2 initially and repeat these so that the children get a good understanding of the purpose of this. At school we might play the same one every day for a week (or half term!) for example. 


GoNoodle is a great resource  – so many fun songs to dance/sing/move along to.
