Mr Slater and Miss Eaton welcome you to our shared learning page!

Wellbeing 29.4.2020

We are going to do a short exercise and you will need someone to read the instructions to you so you can follow them.

You need something small to eat for this activity.

Begin this practice with three deep breaths

Take small nibbles or bites of the food.

– What is the taste like? Is it sweet or savoury?

– Pause between each bite and notice any changing sensations in your mouth or body.
– What does the food feel like on your tongue?
– Do you need to crunch it between your teeth, or can you slowly dissolve it in your mouth?
– Try taking a slightly smaller or slightly larger bite.
– How does this change the way eating this food feels?
– Notice which muscles in your mouth, neck and body move as you swallow the food.
