Wellbeing Warriors

Worry Stones

Our Wellbeing Warriors completed a mindfulness activity by making Worry Stones out of polymer clay. They selected 2 colours which they twisted and roll into a snake and finally moulded into a ball and then pressing their thumb to make a smooth thumb sized indent.

While they were being baked in the oven we practiced deep breathing techniques. We then wrote messages explaining how to use the Worry Stones.



Wrap you hand around me,

Give a rub and say -

Be gone all my worries and sadness,

Today is going to a wonderful day.


Feeling sad?

Having a bad day?

I am with you every step of the day!

Take the stone between two fingers

And rub your worries away.


Some of our Wellbeing Warriors went around the school gifting them for adults and classes of children to use whenever they feel overwhelmed or stressed. Then demonstrated how to use the stones and shared the benefits of deep breathing and mindfulness.


Calm Down Bottles

Our Wellbeing Warriors have been learning about what we can do when big emotions take over. They each made ‘calm down bottle’ from glitter, orbeezs, shells and baby oil. They got to kindly gift these to each class for their reset boxes.  Some of  our Wellbeing Warriors went into Nursery and Reception and modelled how to use the bottles to calm down with our younger children. They have been placed in their Reflection areas for the children to use when they feel mad, sad or worried alongside the following poem;



When feeling sad, mad or you need a break,

Give this bottle a little shake.


Take deep breaths as you watch the glitter fall,

It will help you calm down: brain, body and all.


When you need to calm down it’s a helpful too,

Use it a few times, until you are feeling better and cool!
