Feel Good

We have looked at feelings and emotions and read the book ‘Super Duper You!’ We spoke about how we can feel different ways at different times and not everyone feels the same in situations. We then created a feel good box and decorated this in our favourite colours, patterns and pictures. Next we wrote something lovely about everyone in the group. We popped these into their feel good boxes so they can read the lovely comments about them. It will make us feel happy when we read them.


After reading Super Duper You, we discussed what makes us special. We then designed and created a shape and covered this in tin foil to make a mirror. After, we decorated our mirrors and used them to say something good about ourselves.


During science we have been learning about our senses. We now know we have 5 senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. We used this knowledge to identify which sense was needed for different scenarios and we also linked this to our literacy and thought about our likes and dislikes. After we had identified our 5 senses, we went out and completed a senses walk. We thought about things we could see, hear, touch and feel. We could not taste anything while we were out on a walk. We thought about how things might be different at different times of the year too.
