Lie down and close your eyes. Maybe you have a snuggly blanket to get under. Let your body feel heavy. Choose 5 different parts of your body to tense/squeeze then let go. Squeeze in and let go each part one at a time. Each time you squeeze in, breath in through your nose. Each time you let go breath out through your nose. Before opening your eyes try some belly breathing. Place your favourite cuddly on your belly. Watch it move up and down as you breath slowly in and out.

Chatting Online safely

The video below was the first video we shared on the web page to help us learn how to stay safe when sharing pictures and videos online.

Watch it again, using the link below, and answer the questions that pop up during the first half of the video. 

Look out for a message that pops up after the questions as this is where the activities and discussion points may want to stop there if you did these last time or otherwise have another go or try it for the first time. It's important to learn how to be safe online so it is a good use of your time.
