We have been speaking a lot about our emotions in RGC and RAM. Miss Canala has been undertaking a series of professional learning days that help us track our wellbeing. As a part of this we are experimenting by reflecting on our feelings as we come into school each day. Each morning when we wnter the classroom we will put a gem on our name, the colour of the gem will correspond to the way we are feeling. This will give us an opportunity to identify our emotions. It is important for us to feel a range of emotions, good or bad, and it is the way that we respond to those emotions that we are becoming more aware of. As we become more familiar with this we will add more emotions to our feelings check-in station.
Further, today we focused on the emotion; happiness. We explored how happiness makes us feel, what we might look like when are happy, and what things we do that make us happy.
