Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
How would you feel if?:

Photo emotions (pictures of different emotions) - happy, surprised, scared, sad and angry.

1. Put the pictures in different areas of the room, where the children can see them

2. Introduce the activity by having a quick discussion of how it's fine if different people feel differently about the same situation.

3. Suggest a situation; children stand by the picture that shows how they'd feel in that situation:

You find money in the street

You come home from school and no-one is there

You see a spider

You see a kitten

Your teacher shouts at you

There will be a party at school tomorrow

A well known footballer, David Beckham etc. comes to school

Your homework is too difficult

Your homework is too easy

You see two children fighting in the playground

You get a present

Someone steals your bike

Someone tears your book bag

4. some children may be able to explain why they'd feel that way e.g. "I'd be cross if Thierry Henry came here, because I don't like Arsenal".

Reinforce the idea that there's no 'right' answer.
