Calm Confident Children
This programme is for Primary School Classrooms and it is called “Calm Confident Children”
It is in line with the current emphasis on children's mental well-being.
It supports children with daily core exercises to develop skills they can use independently to build self-esteem, concentration, attention and find motivation to learn effectively.
Parents can also use these exercises with their children.
The programme develops over a six-week period, (a half term.) It is easy, practical and enjoyable. It takes around 5 minutes daily for Reception to Year 2 with slightly longer daily sessions for Years 3 to 6. Years 5 and 6 incorporate exam revision tips.
The videos below will show you how to teach the exercises.
Video 1 - Core Exercises
Video 2 - Additional Exercises
Notes on the videos:-
The first video demonstrates the core exercises you can use from Reception to Year 6.
The second video demonstrates additional exercises that you can use from Class 2 upwards.
Further exercises are added week by week when the core exercises have been taught. The written rationale for the core exercises from Reception to and including Year 6 is available on request.

- Squeak Babble and Shake
- Silent Statue
- Soothing Breathing
- Beautiful Butterfly Wings
- Gentle Finger Tapping
- The Sparkling Ball
- A Big Stretch
