For Primary

Do-BeMindful adopts a whole-school approach to Mindfulness-inspired learning designed to nurture a kind, caring and hopeful culture within the community. All programmes for children and young people are delivered via our purpose-built online learning platform and by adopting a blended learning approach our schools are offered the opportunity to learn the life-enhancing skills of Mindfulness in a way that is:

  • inclusive
  • flexible
  • accessible to all

Our philosophy is that education professionals cannot teach Mindfulness to others unless they have meaningful experience gained from personal practice and learning. Completion of either our Educators’ programmes: Do-BeMindful Foundation Programme or Resilience-based Recovery: Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness Programme is pre-requisite in advancing to our teaching programmes below for young learners.

Do-BeMindful Adventurers Programme: 1st level learners; Reception in Wales and Key Stage 1 in England

 

This programme provides 8 weeks of lesson materials for primary teachers involving engaging activities and imaginative play as well as a daily Mindful breathing practice encouraging children to develop important life-skills that will benefit their mental wellbeing and improve emotional resilience.

“Do-BeMindful Adventurers is an engaging, fun, thought-provoking and incredibly worthwhile programme to support us, as adults, to deliver mindfulness-based education to our young learners to support their wellbeing.”

Neyland Community School, Pembrokeshire, Wales

Do-BeMindful Explorers Programme: 2nd level learners; Key Stage 2 in England and Wales.

 

This programme provides lesson materials for primary teachers to use with their learners over a continuous 8 week period. There are 2 lessons per week, 16 lessons in total in a series of fun, engaging Mindfulness lessons for young learners that will help them develop healthy habits of mind and transformative, lasting life-skills that will benefit their mental health, emotional wellbeing and academic performance.

“I particularly enjoyed the neuroscience and the teaching tips sections in this programme. I do believe for it to work teachers have to practice themselves. The Explorers programme will help many of our pupils who are dealing with stress and anxiety to build resilience.”

Do-BeMindful Resilience-based Recovery Programme for Primary Schools: 1st / 2nd level; Reception / Key Stage 1 and 2 in England and Wales.

 

Developed in response to COVID-19, this programme offers 8 weeks of Whole-School Activities to help children and families build the emotional resilience that they need to cope with the anxiety and stress they are currently facing.

 

Our Activities help children find ways to process, express and accept what they have been through, and are currently feeling and thinking, in a safe and calm way. We also aim to help children learn adaptive and effective coping strategies which lay the foundation for building emotional resilience.
