We all experience a whole variety of emotions in any one day. Sometimes those feelings can leave us anxious, stressed or overwhelmed.

The purpose of the ‘Be a star or your emotions’ poster is to give pupils coping strategies to support their emotional health and wellbeing. It encourages them to shine a light on their feelings by taking time to:
