The children love YogaBugs virtual and follow the process really well with it being a teacher on the screen. We have found that when doing the sessions, the children are not as reliant on the staff, which gives both the staff and pupils a short break.
We have found the school portal really easy to use, and it is nicely signposted. With a cinematic approach. We like that the relaxation and warm up sessions are separate from the main classes on the portal because it allows us to utilise them throughout the day. The relaxation sessions are a great way to refocus the children when they need it at different times of the day. The sun salutation is great for stretching and our school physio has found this really helpful with our children, and we have seen an improvement in flexibility.
We have seen concentration improve, more of our children can follow the classes now from when we first began them. Concentration has improved in the classroom since using these sessions, which therefore is improving behaviour.
This programme can be embedded into the curriculum which makes it sustainable for the school. We did not find the programme overpriced and it has a lot of content, not only for the children but our staff as well! The fact that the programme has an area which focussing on the parents was a positive to us purchasing the programme.
