KS1 - Lesson 8: Managing my feelings from the ‘Who Am I?’ section. To help children make sense of their emotions and develop an understanding of how to manage them.
As children learn about the world around them, locally, nationally and globally, it is important for them to learn more about themselves. They need to explore who they are, what they can do, their favourite things, what makes them special and the type of person they want to become. They develop a degree of self-awareness and awareness of others around them.
This knowledge and understanding of themselves will then create a greater understanding of how and where they fit in their communities and indeed how they feel about topical world issues. Children should be able to form an opinion about themselves and other people, whether they live locally or in the wider world. They should feel confident in sharing this with others, knowing that their opinion is a valuable one.
While covering this unit, children will begin to understand what makes them tick, that it is acceptable to have likes and dislikes; and that feelings, be they positive or negative, are perfectly natural and normal.
