PSHE - Emotions and Feelings
In PSHE we are learning about different emotions and feelings. We talked about how it is okay to feel sad, angry and frustrated. Everybody feels like this sometimes. We talked about different things that make us happy and how we can cheer ourselves up.

In English we have been reading the story ‘The Bog Baby’. We made our own bog babies from plasticine. We have been writing brilliant sentences about them and thinking about how we can look after them.

To celebrate World Mental Health Day, we had a wellbeing afternoon. We discussed who we can talk to and what we can do if we ever feel sad or worried. We also talked about activities we can do to cheer ourselves up and how we can help others too. We made ‘happiness bunting’ which we decorated with lots of happy things to brighten up our classroom. We also designed our own superheroes who each had a power to cheer people up. For example, a power to give great hugs or bake cupcakes. We had lots of fun!
