Our big questions this week are:
What things make us feel unhappy or cross?
What can we do when we have uncomfortable feelings?
Explain that we experience a vast range of feelings, then discuss that some feelings feel good when we experience them but others do not and this means they are uncomfortable feelings. Together identify which feelings might be uncomfortable. Highlight that exploring uncomfortable feelings helps us learn to manage them in an appropriate way. Explain that it is OK to sometimes feel unhappy or cross but it is important to know what to do when we are feeling that way.
The children's task is to complete the feelings wheel sheet individually. They should draw three things which make them feel unhappy or cross on the inside of the wheel, then draw things they could do to help manage their feelings and feel better in these situations on the outer edge of the wheel.
