The Battle of Hastings - A Mindfulness and Relaxation Lesson Plan
Whether you are teaching The Battle of Hastings as part of your history topic or to commemorate the 950th Anniversary of The Battle of Hastings this lesson is perfect. It teaches children basic relaxation techniques as well as a few historical facts about the battle. You may think that battles and relaxation don't go together, but I'm here to prove you wrong!
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 in the area for each child.
This lesson is suitable for the primary age range (7-11years).
