Mindfulness for 7 – 11 year olds

The Paws.b mindfulness course was created by the Mindfulness in Schools Project.  It is a course specifically designed to offer mindfulness for younger children.

The course consists of:

  • 6 x 50 minute sessions
  • course handbook
  • audio recordings of the mindfulness exercises

Each of the six sessions is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation using striking visuals, film clips, animations and activities to enable your child to understand how mindfulness can help them to train their minds to concentrate better, make good choices and do their best.

The mindfulness exercises that your child will learn will give her/him simple, practical resources to use at home, in school and in life generally.


What are the benefits of mindfulness?

The course can help your child to:

  • experience greater well-being (e.g. feel happier, calmer, more fulfilled)
  • fulfill their potential and pursue their own goals 
  • improve their concentration and focus, in classes, in exams and tests, on the sports field, when playing games
  • work with difficult mental states such anxious thoughts and low moods
  • cope with the everyday stresses and strains of life such as exams, relationships, sleep problems, family issues
