Emotions Intervention

This emotions intervention is written for a group of six children and is led by an ELSA or teaching assistant. It covers recognising, labelling and expressing the six basic emotions. It is written for children from 4-7 but could also be useful for children with autism or special needs. The sessions last for approximately 40 to 60 minutes.

The intervention covers the six basic emotions of happy, sad, angry, scared, surprised and disgusted.

A pre and post assessment is filled in by the class teacher at the beginning and end of the intervention. The assessments we use are enclosed with this pack. These assessments cover other areas of emotional literacy and social skills but are a good indicator of any other problems that the child may have. Please choose which ones you want to use.

All the paper resources are included in this pack. You will need a large sheet of paper for week 6 and a cuddly teddy and hoops for week 2.

Learning objectives are as follows:

I can…

  • recognise and name the six basic emotions
  • understand the reasons why I might feel different emotions
  • give examples of when I felt happy and sad
  • and give examples of when I felt angry and scared
  • or give examples of when I felt surprised and disgusted
  • tell you about some of the physical sensations I get when I feel an emotion

What’s included?

  • Planning booklet with six sessions of planning
  • Relaxation booklet
  • Emotion fans
  • Emotion posters
  • Circle time rules
  • Circle time sentence stems
  • Emotions Link it game
  • Teddy emotion sort
  • Colour your emotions
  • Drawing worksheet
  • Assessments

You may have other generic assessments that you use but it is important to try and track progress however you choose to do it. Often when a child takes part in this type of intervention other skills are developed too. For example social skills, sharing, co-operating, teamwork and self-esteem to name a few.

It is a good idea to keep a book, like a learning journey to stick the children’s work in. This is a brilliant way of sharing with parents and teachers things that the children are doing with you.

"Fabulous resources- takes the hard work out of planning sessions as Debbie has done it all for you. Cannot recommend this site enough."
