Week 7 - How do you feel?
This week's theme explores feelings. In school, the children are encouraged to talk about their feelings. What makes them feel happy/sad/excited/angry?
Grown-ups: Talk to your child about different feelings that your child may experience. It is important for your child to know that everybody feels sad or angry or lonely sometimes. How can we overcome these feelings? What can we do to help our friends if they are feeling sad?
