Living and Learning: mental health

Wednesday 23 November 2022

This week, Year 2, with the help of some of the characters from the Beano, have been learning about a range of emotions.

Emotions are feelings. They can change all the time.

We all experience a whole range of emotions, from anger to happiness to fear.

Looking at someone’s face and their body language can help us to understand how others might be feeling.

How might Dennis be feeling? What clues tell you this?

We discussed why it is important to recognise and talk about our emotions and how to seek help with our feelings or if we notice a friend might need help.

Next week, we will be thinking about self care techniques that can help us to look after our own mental health. Mindfulness is one example of a self care technique. We do lots of mindfulness techniques in class – ask your child to share them with you. Also, look out for the wellbeing bingo for you to try at home.
