Understanding Emotions - Bounce Forward

Understanding Emotions


Practical tips to boost your student’s positive emotions

Some children and teenagers will deal well with uncertainty and family loss, as we are experiencing with the passing of the Queen, while others less so.

Schools and teachers are well placed to be that trusted adult away from the family environment, learning amongst peers in a way that helps students bounce forward.

We have created some very quick to use tools that can be part of everyday activity. They are;

    • Quick to use
    • Designed as an activity in class or form time
    • Designed to help young people develop greater awareness of emotions

Note: the materials have been designed with teachers in mind, but can useful for parents to use at home.
