Over the last few weeks, we have been learning about mental health in our Living and Learning sessions.
Year 3 know that mental health encompasses our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our mood.
In our first L&L session, we talked about different feelings and emotions and whether they were positive feelings, negative feelings, or both.
This week, we progressed to talking about how we manage feelings – particularly feelings that we may associate with being negative. The children were great at coming up with strategies for managing difficult feelings. Some of their ideas included mindfulness techniques and taking deep breaths.
Ask your child what techniques they can use to manage a tricky emotion!
