Designed for children aged 5-7 (years 1 & 2), our Brilliant Me & My Feelings Course focuses on how to manage big emotions and increase emotional literacy. We aim to give children the skills they need to understand and talk about their feelings. It is made up of 5 x 90 minute online sessions.
Each student will join the online session using ‘Zoom’ software (which can be downloaded) from their home.
Students from all countries are welcome. Course times are based on UK time and all students must be fluent in English.
Connecting with how we feel
Children can often struggle to manage their big emotions and feelings; they may not be able to articulate how they feel or even recognise the exact emotion they are experiencing. This course is about developing your child’s emotional vocabulary and awareness. Taking the time to connect with how we feel and to understand our emotions without judgement, allows us to respond from a place of control rather than being overcome by big emotions.
Each online Brilliant Me Course includes access to additional exciting activities for your child to do independently at any point during their day/week. Each of these is designed to be a fun distraction from what is going on around them. These activity sheets will be emailed to you along with a summary of the content shared during the online session each day. At the end of the week you will also be sent three follow up videos to help embed your child’s learning. Please watch these with your child in your own time and discuss the themes. These videos can be re-watched at any time to help revisit the learning and continue to develop your child’s confidence.
