    • Preparation for learning

      An excellent video! Many thanks to all who created it. I was struck by the importance of allowing children to prepare for the day: emotional reflection & expression (& vocabulary for it), breathing & calming exercises, and the massage for relaxation, mutual respect & care. By making the mind receptive and acknowledging the child as a person, the learning can be much more enjoyable, efficient, and creative. Great, too, that we have AST's who can really develop these themes for colleagues with little time to spare!
