Living and Learning – I can talk about how I am feeling

Tuesday 19 March 2024

Our Living Learning statement this week is ‘I can talk about how I am feeling.’

During this session, KS1 identified and discussed different emotions. We discussed vocabulary linking to these emotions and how to recognise such feelings in ourselves and in others.

The children recognised that everybody experiences a range of different feelings and this is completely normal and okay. We can experience and recognise these through thoughts, facial expression and body language.

We talked about how we can deal with our emotions and manage them effectively.

In class, children watched a pixar animation where they were asked to spot different emotions and explain why they thought each character was feeling a certain way.

Help at home: by discussing feelings often with your children and find techniques that help children to understand and regulate these emotions.
