Today in PSHE, we are talking about how we make others feel.


Share what makes you feel good about yourself e.g I am helpful; I score goals in football; I am a good friend.

How do you behave when you feel good about yourself? [you tend to make positive choices.]


What can affect your behaviour in positive ways [parent/carer comes to see you in class assembly, being praised in front of others etc.]

What might make a person feel not so good about themselves [when people shout at them, when they fall out with a friend, when they are unkind.]

How might someone behave when they don’t feel good about themselves? [tend to make negative choices.]

What can affect a person's behaviour in not so good ways [feeling tired, feeling sad, just had a falling out with a friend.]

We can be affected by other people’s behaviour on the outside and on the inside of our bodies. E.g. “I was punched on the arm and got a bruise (outside) so now I am scared to go into the playground (inside).”


Read through the play script provided, you could use toys to act it out.


  • Why do you think Child 1 behaved like that?
  • How did Child 2+3 behave?
  • Why did they behave like that?
  • How did Child 4+5 behave and why?
  • Which was the better approach?


Child 4+5 were still angry but they didn’t become aggressive. They kept calm, stayed cool. They didn’t make the situation worse. In fact they made it all work out well for everyone.

It’s possible to react in a calm way when someone is being a bit aggressive. Sometimes it can help there to be a good outcome for everyone.
