A MUST for every classroom
Tools and training to bring calm to your classroom in minutes
WHAT IS CALMACLASS?
- settle students during registration
- restore calm after busy break and lunch times
- manage class disruptions
It is very worthwhile, and if implemented correctly could have a huge impact on both staff and children.
Feel overwhelmed by the number of young people struggling with stress and anxiety in your classroom
Want to support the emotional wellbeing of pupils but are not sure how
Have no extra time to take on another wellbeing programme
Need quick and simple bite-size exercises to help your pupils self-regulate
I have been using the Calmaclass toolkit with my Year 1 classes for just over a year. I introduced them as a method of calming them down after hectic lunchtimes. I have continued to use the resources at this time of day, a couple of times a week and the children look forward to coming in and having a short time of quiet and calm – they always remind me if I forget.
CALMACLASS TECHNIQUES INCLUDE:
Exercises are designed to help pupils to develop a range of physical and emotional skills that will enhance their personal and academic skill whilst supporting their emotional health and wellbeing.
Calmaclass encourages pupils to stop and take mindful brain breaks during the day, so allowing them to increase their brain power, concentration and improve learning.
It aims to support your pupils to build good emotional health through relaxation, meditation and values-based learning.
Teachers can now easily access a toolkit of mindful exercises that can be used before and after break and lunchtimes, during transitions, circle time and those moments where the whole class needs to cool down.
Whilst other educational programmes can cater to improving the analytical left brain, Calmaclass is a creatively oriented right-brain approach to mindfulness that encourages students to get in touch with core personal values of self-worth, happiness, kindness and gratitude.
Our exercises can help get your pupils into a relaxed state where they are ready to learn.
The Calmaclass programme works on the integration of the left and right brain.

I hear so much good stuff about Relax Kids – so many of the schools I coach have great things to say. Relax Kids do a range of resources which I really rate.
Before using these exercises in schools across the County of Durham, 98% of pupils scored low on their relaxation levels and high on hyperactivity
After 6 sessions, 85% of pupils reported that they felt more calm and relaxed
98% of pupils enjoyed the exercises ands wanted to continue
We use Calmaclass every morning as soon as the children are settled. I have been really pleased with the way the pupils have responded. In fact, they asked me to do an exercise before we did a practice SATs paper last week!
Over the last 4 years we have invested significantly in rolling out Relax Kids in our area. Relax Kids gives young people and families skills to build up their resilience and start to prevent mental health issues and identify mental health issues before there is a problem.
As a Local Authority teacher for mental health I wholeheartedly recommend Calmaclass to all schools I work with. Individual children and whole classes love to use the exercises and resources, which provide them with a great sense of emotional wellbeing. This is wonderful for teachers, teaching assistants and learning mentors.
It really does make a difference to the lives of those who participate. Children are less hyper-active, therefore calmer, kinder, and more focused.

I use Calmaclass in my school and I can not recommend it highly enough. I work with 4 and 5 year olds in a very socially and economically deprived area. There are a lot of behaviour issues but the use of Calmaclass really helps to calm them down and gives them a channel for expressing their emotions. Thank you for this wonderful resource which has been so successful that we will be rolling it out to the rest of the school.

We have been utilising our new “magic powers of Calmaclass” with small groups and one to one sessions with children to transition them from one activity to the next, and have had success with this. On one occasion it was with a pupil who was coming down from a high state of stress, and the positive impact was great to see.
The exercises can be accessed online or in your toolkit. Go to the section you need ie Brain Breaks or Lunchtime Coolers and use them instantly by reading them out.
The training was great – informative, inspiring and affirming. It was a really good balance of theory and practical experience. A must!
