A Visitor to Y3 – Children’s Mental Health

Feb 12, 2024PSHE

Y3 had a special visitor from RISE, an organisation linked to children’s mental health. During our session, the children recapped the different emotions they might feel and how emotions are there to tell us something. Emotions act as signals – a little bit like traffic lights. Certain emotions might warn us to slow down or stop before we say or do something that might not be good. The children developed an understanding of zones of regulation and learnt small techniques to support them in regulating their emotions. One technique was finger breathing.
