The BFG by Roald Dahl - A Mindfulness and Relaxation Lesson Plan
The story of The BFG has been a firm favourite with children and adults alike since it was first published in 1982. With its nonsensical words and humorous plot The BFG is a guaranteed to make you smile.
This lesson plan below can be broken down into component parts for a short relaxation activity or can be done as a full lesson. Feel free to adapt it to suit your children and their abilities and needs.There is a script to help you connect the individual exercises, take a walk with Sophie and the BFG and relax into the magic.
Mindfulness and relaxation have been proven to increase children's concentration, create a calmer atmosphere and even increase attainment. It is a wonderful addition to any setting.
All my lesson plans are created for people with no prior knowledge of relaxation and mindfulness techniques and carefully go through every technique step by step. They also include a fun script for you to read through which incorporates all the techniques learned into an enjoyable, relaxing story which is completely age appropriate.
My lessons now all come with a child and teacher assessment sheet which is fully editable and enables you to show evidence for the progress and learning of each child.
This lesson is suitable for the whole primary age range (4-11years).
