Lesson 4 - L.I Recognising & managing a wide range of feelings
Today, we are going to continue to think about emotions and the importance of being able to recognise and manage them (something that many children and adults struggle with at some point!).
Read the following poem below and try to visualise in your head what the poet is thinking.
What do you think this poem is about?
It is about worrying and the ‘what ifs’ that the person is worrying about. Can you think of anything that has made you worry? Were these things likely to happen or not? Copy the following ‘What Ifs’ and underline the ones that you think are likely to happen:
What if I don’t understand in class?
What if I fail my test?
What if a bolt of lightning strikes me?
What if the bus is late?
What if a lion gets me?
What if I get paint on my shirt?
What if green hair grows on my chest?
Now, draw a thought bubble (there is a template to help you if you need one on the next page) and have a go at writing your own ‘What If’ poem for a child of your age who is moving to a new school.
You can use the ‘What if…’/‘What if I…’/What if my…’/What if a…’from the poem as starters for each line.
Think about all the things the child may be worrying about such as ‘What if I don’t make any friends?’, ‘What if the teachers are scary?’, ‘What if I get lost?’.
