Emotions 1

This KS2 PSHE quiz will help you understand when some emotions will be felt by yourself or others as well as teaching you the definitions of some words you can use to describe your emotions.

Emotions are the names given to our feelings. They describe the way we feel at different times and enable us to process the situation we are in and how we are responding to it. Our emotions can change quickly from one moment to the next and sometimes certain emotions can last a long time. Some emotions are nice to feel and some are harder to deal with but all emotions are important and it is okay to talk about our emotions with others. There are 6 main categories that emotions can be divided into: happiness, anger, fear, sadness, disgust and surprise, with numerous words being used to describe different degrees of each emotion. It is important that you can start to identify which emotions you are feeling and why - as well being able to tell what emotions are being felt by those around you so that you can respond in an appropriate way.
