Reflection zones

May 30 2018

MENTAL health was on the agenda at a Fishponds school when pupils just about to take their SATS were kept calm thanks to a special 'reflection zone'.

The nursery class at Fishponds C of E Academy was transformed into eight individual areas which were created by Reverend Lizzie and her team from All Saints Church.

Each zone had a different purpose to enable children to reflect on using calming strategies, develop creative skills and to think about the elements of what makes each individual special and unique.

The team is hoping to continue to support the school to run a smaller version of the reflection zones one lunchtime a week during term 6.  

Principal Debbie Coker said: "The children (and staff!) found the reflection zones very calming and they appreciated the time out of our busy world."
