Who Said Life Isn’t a Fairytale? EYFS & KS1 Mindfulness

England, Scotland, Wales


Which is your favourite fairytale? Aladdin’s Magic Carpet, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Jack and the beanstalk, Pinnochio, Cinderella, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and Jill, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...

Here at One Day, we understand how important it is for our pupils to be able to cope well with their feelings all year round. So, we have especially developed drama workshops brimming with imagination, creativity and positivity to help promote mental health awareness in our young people.

We have based our workshops on the key qualities which run through most fairytales: peace, love and happiness. Alongside our professional facilitator, the children are given a structured space to creatively dwell on these themes. Transforming these well-loved fairytale stories into simple, creative journeys and visualisations, gives the children (and adults!) an opportunity to explore the well of positive, pure and focussed feelings inside them.

These one hour workshops use well-known fairytale stories as a simple and fun way to show children how to relax their bodies and minds. The characters in these stories often show either great strength and incredible courage, or acts of love and generosity – but with one common theme – there is always a struggle of good over evil.

These workshops are short one hour bursts of creativity specifically designed to keep the younger children engaged in the learning. As the sessions are short and sweet we can work with up to four classes in a day.

"The workshop for reception and Nursery was brilliant. The children haven't stopped talking about it and are doing some of the moves (the hug me move is their favourite!) We have started using mindful music and are going to make glitter bottles next week with the children! Give our thanks to your Facilitator - she was very good with the younger ones and explained everything really well."
