Some of us will already be thinking about September. The thought of returning to school may make us feel lots of different emotions such as excited, happy, nervous, worried - just to name a few! All of these feelings are normal. Today we are going to be thinking about things we are looking forward to and things we might be worried about.

To begin, let’s read ‘The Worrysaurus’ by Rachel Bright all about setting worries free to enjoy the moment.

Once you have listened to the story, we want you to complete the task ‘My Top Five Worries’ and share these with a grown up you trust. You can also email these to us if you’d like to. After you have had a think about anything worrying you, we want you to think positive and complete the task ‘My Top Five Things I’m Looking Forward To’. You can also email these to us if you’d like!
