This term in our SCARF (PSHE) lessons we have been thinking about our feelings and emotions. The children have discussed lots of different emotions and how we can understand how someone might be feeling from their body language or facial expression.
We read the book, The Colour Monster, which tells the story of a monster who doesn't understand what he is feeling as his emotions are all mixed up. His friend tries to help him understand his feelings by separating them and distinguishing between happy, sad, calm, worried etc. We have had lots of discussion in class about how some emotions make us feel good and some make us feel uncomfortable and how we can recognise signs of these.
This week the children created their own monster and decided how it would be feeling.
