We have been reading the book “The Colour Monster” about a monster who is confused because his feelings are all mixed up. It is important for children to be able to recognise and name their emotions as they begin to understand themselves and how they are feeling.

We have talked about what makes us happy, sad, angry and scared. Look at our pictures of ourselves as ‘Colour Monsters’ and what we said.

It was lovely to hear lots of the children using and understanding the words ‘calm’ and ‘relaxed’ which is how we describe ourselves after our afternoon mindfulness sessions.

What great understanding they are beginning to show.
