We hope you all had a lovely summer break. This terms our topic is 'How Are You Today?' with the main focus being well being and exploring emotions. For some young children reading and expressing how they feel or how someone else is feeling doesn't come naturally.
Below I've added some songs about how we are feeling as an introduction to exploring emotions.
Game 1: Use a mirror to explore facial features and make silly faces, moving eyebrows and mouth.
Game 2; Paint or draw a mouth onto a pre-drawn face and ask 'how do you feel today?'
Game 3: Use Mr Potato Head or Mr Pop to make a face.
Game 4: Cut and stick Mr Potato Head
