Topic: Moral & Spiritual – When I’m Feeling …

Learning Outcomes

To gain an understanding of feelings and how best to cope with them. To understand how your body and mind reacts when experiencing these feelings.

 

Introduction

Gather children in a circle. Ask children on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest) how they are feeling today by passing around the talking stick.

Once finished, explain to the children that today we will be focusing on feelings.

Talk through all the different feelings there are and in what circumstances we would experience them.

Development

Read through scenario cards to the children where they will select/write down what emotion/feeling they associate with the scenario. The children will discuss where they feel/how their body feels with the different emotions.

The class will discuss how we should cope with these feelings and manage them.

Plenary

Children will complete an activity sheet of matching feelings to reactions and also watch a video and answer the questions as the video presents them e.g. how is the character feeling?
