We explored types of feelings in todays lesson. Children read the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and decided what part of the story connected with four types of feelings; mixed feelings, changing feelings, confused feelings and uncomfortable feelings. After completing this as a class, children chose their own story and used their 100 languages to explore the characters experience of different feelings.
