In Health and Wellbeing this half term, we learned lots of new things about conflicting emotions (having two emotions at the same time), having a positive mindset and how to stay safe online.
Knowledge we have gained:
- Know how to describe the range and intensity of their feelings to others
- Know how to tell the difference between good and not so good feelings
- To know how to recognise other people’s feelings
- To know what positively and negatively affects my physical, mental and emotional health
Skills we have learnt and used:
- How to manage complex or conflicting emotions
- To recognise that they may experience conflicting emotions and when they might need to listen to or overcome these
- To care about other people’s feelings and try to see, respect and if necessary, constructively challenge, their points of view
- To practise using strategies to develop a growth mindset
