Story Massage for Exam Stress

Children face the pressure of exams from a young age. We’ve written this supportive Story Massage for exam stress with the help of a Year 6 teacher and year leader in preparation for SATs next week. This Story Massage for exam stress will act as a reminder of the key points in preparing for a test. Teachers can use it as a peer massage activity, friends can massage each other and parents can try it at home to promote relaxation and concentration.
