Happiness is a pleasant emotion. But some emotions are not nice at all.

Emotions - Age 7-11

Emotions are a constant theme in PSHE. It is imoprtant that children understand when some emotions will be felt by themselves or others. This quiz, written for KS2 aged children, will help them to learn that, as well as teaching them the definitions of some words used to describe emotions.

The feelings we have are called emotions. Emotions describe the way we feel at different times and can change quickly from one moment to the next. 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.

Happiness, anger, fear, sadness, disgust and surprise are just a few emotions. There are many more. 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.
