Lunch Time 


Guided Reading 1pm - 1.30pm



PSHE 1.30pm - 2.30pm

Watch the following clip to introduce the emotion ‘worry’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUPGUmEzpQE  Can you discuss or think about what Ruby’s worry could be?

Can we really see our emotions? Just because we can’t see them does that mean they aren’t there?

Then watch the clip of the Disney film Inside Out where the emotions are introduced. Have you seen it? What’s it about? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaOEQJGig9c

Think about why Sadness is blue. Read through the ‘profile sheet’ of each of the emotions underlining the adjectives used to describe each emotion and discuss with an adult what they mean. Is it ok to have each of these feelings/emotions? Why do you think they are the colours they are?

Open the 'emotions worksheet' and write down a time when you have felt each of those emotions and draw a picture to go with each one. For example, Mrs Hodgson felt fear when a spider jumped out on her and ran towards her.
