LSMS Musical Activities to Support Children's Wellbeing - Jan 2021

Children need time for play, curiosity & nurture, and even more so during the present times coping with the pandemic and loss of learning in school for many children. Ideally children need 30 minutes at the start of the day and 10 minutes at the end of the day to spend time being curious, playing and being creative. Without this opportunity children may find engaging with lessons more difficult and, in some cases, no learning will be able to take place.

Young People need access to activities that support their biochemistry of wellbeing. Activities linked to these chemical endorsing needs can be offered as a musical activity, along with other art forms, and is a good tool for giving pupils these creative experiences, to help them settle into learning each day.

These musical activities are taken from the Wellbeing resource on our website but have been updated for ease of immediate use by teachers, parents and carers alike.
