This Good to Be ME! theme is the first of two focusing specifically on feelings. It explores feelings in the context of the child as an individual, developing self-awareness and helping the child to realise that it really is ‘Good to be me’.

The theme is about understanding our feelings as well as considering our strengths and weaknesses as learners. It aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: self-awareness, managing feelings and empathy.

 

Good to Be ME! focuses on:

  • understanding feelings, and why and how they lead us to behave the way we do – excited, proud, surprised, hopeful, disappointed, worried and anxious;
  • self-awareness – feeling good about myself, taking risks;
  • managing my feelings – relaxing, coping with anxiety;
  • standing up for myself – assertiveness, standing up for my views.

There are guidance notes for teachers for the video  and materials.

The music covers a wide range of styles from early Classical, via popular song to modern music written to accompany films or adverts.
