- To perform a range of relaxation stretches
Pupils should know:
- Simple self-care techniques, including the importance of rest, time spent with friends and family and the benefits of hobbies and interests.
- That mental wellbeing is a normal part of daily life, in the same way as physical health
Pupils needing extra support: Could work in pairs so that one person can do the stretch while the other draws a stick figure to show the pose.
Pupils working at greater depth: Ask to label the stick figures, describing which parts of the body should feel a stretch or how you should be breathing during the activity.
