Wellbeing/Mindfulness Cover Lessons – Infants:
“Jo has been working with our year 2 children, she has used different learning activities and techniques to ensure all children are able to take part and engage with mindfulness thinking. This has improved the confidence and self-esteem of many individuals within the class. The children have really enjoyed these sessions” – see their comments below:
“I love Miss Steer’s session: the activities help me to listen and I know
it is okay to make mistakes.”
“I like the mindfulness eating. You use all of your senses and it helps you to focus.”
“The activities help me to learn how to be calm and not to worry about things.”
Mrs. S. Gordon, Headteacher at Lee Brigg Infant & Nursery School
Wellbeing/Mindfulness Cover Lessons – Juniors:
“Jo Steer has worked with us on a weekly basis since January providing excellent curriculum enrichment opportunities for children from Foundation Stage to Year 6. The quality of her lessons and the positive relationships she has been able to build with children of all ages in school have meant that we are regularly able to release teachers with curriculum leadership responsibilities for leadership time, whilst maintaining the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom. As a school we have had some excellent feedback from children and parents about the work being done with Miss Steer, most notably her unit of work of mindfulness.”
Mr. D. Fernley, Assistant Headteacher for Curriculum and Teaching and Learning at Walton Primary Academy.
Wellbeing/Mindfulness Group Lessons – Secondary School:
“Jo has been working with some of our students in KS3. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and the difference they have made has been amazing!”
Mrs. S. Salmon, Assistant Head at Castleford Academy.
Feedback from one-to-one Mindfulness Coaching:
“Jo has worked wonders with my girl. After several weeks of hard work on both sides, I have seen a massive difference in terms of her self-confidence and resilience. My daughter came home a different girl to the one who went to her first session. Do not hesitate to book Jo.”
Paula, a proud parent reporting on the progress of her daughter
following 10 sessions of coaching.
