P6 have been using the animated film ‘Inside Out’ as a resource to help explore emotions and reflect upon some of the emotions they felt during their week at Benmore. The children drew a memory of fear, sadness and joy and discussed the body sensations (e.g. sweaty palms from nerves) and thoughts they had during each memory. P6A also looked at intensity of emotions, first we painted varying shades of an emotion colour. Then we talked in groups about different words we could use for anger, joy, sadness, fear and disgust and put them in order of intensity and wrote them onto our ‘shades of emotions cards we painted. We are looking forward to doing more emotion talks work based on Inside Out, especially creating our own personality islands!
