Use a mirror to see how your facial expression can change to show emotions.
Remind yourself of the story ‘The Colour Monster’ using the link below. We then want you to explore how different music makes you feel. Listen to a variety of different songs and write down which ones make you happy, sad, angry etc. You may want to record these somewhere as you may wish to use them at a time when you want to explore an emotion.

As Friday 8th May is the 75th anniversary of VE Day, we have planned a PSHE related activity for you to complete in order to mark this significant event. First, we would like you to view the VE PowerPoint following the link below, which will teach you about VE day. We would then like you to create a 'peace display' which demonstrates the importance of being kind to one another. Think about how we could still remember the past but build a peaceful future together. Think about what peace looks like and the actions we could take everyday to achieve this. You may also want to include the word 'peace' in different languages. You can present this piece of work in any wish you wish. A poster, a piece of Art, a PowerPoint etc. are all possibilities. Allow your creativity to take the lead.
