This KS2 PSHE quiz will show you how you can take control of your own emotions. It will also demonstrate some of the ways you can change them if you want to, as well as give you some ideas on how you can change the emotions of those around you.
There are 6 main types of emotion: happiness, anger, fear, sadness, disgust and surprise, with many additional words used to describe the varying degrees of these emotions. Some emotions feel nice to experience and we can try and encourage these to happen on a frequent basis. Other emotions can be less pleasant and we might try and avoid situations where these occur. Examples are revising for an exam so you don’t feel disappointed if you fail, or avoiding an argument with a friend so you don’t feel sad. Regardless of the emotion you experience, it is good to be aware of them and understand what causes them - but also to be aware of what can change them. In this way, you can take control of your emotions to reduce the ones you don’t want to experience and increase the ones you do. It is also good to be able to identify what emotions other people are experiencing, and be aware of how you can impact on their feelings in both positive and negative ways.
