Do you ever have a funny feeling in your tummy? Do you feel hot, bothered and your head aches? You may have a worry that you’d like some help with.

Life can sometimes be tricky and it can make you feel sad, lonely, worried and nervous and all sorts of other emotions. This can happen to anyone at any time! We want to help you with any worries you have, so please talk to us through the worry box! It is OK to be worried about things and often the more you talk about a worry the smaller it will get!

Just click on the book above to listen to the story.

The Huge Bag of Worries written by Virginia Ironside is a brilliant book exploring emotions and wellbeing. Worry follows Jenny in a big blue bag, it’s around wherever she goes, even when relaxing and watching TV! Will Jenny get the help she needs to rid of the worry?

This is one of many stories we have shared with the children in the school to help them explore their own emotions and wellbeing.

For further resources please explore the SEND folder within the home learning offer. Here you will find a range of further resources you can use to help your child.

Dear Parents/Carers,

This is an opportunity for children to share their concerns and worries in a safe and secure way. Worries will be sent to Ms Smith and Mrs Knapper, who will support and encourage your child to talk through their worries. This is a great way to develop good emotional literacy while supporting the growth of resilience and personal wellbeing.

At Hill View, we use a range of strategies, resources and sources of support to help our children to develop their emotional literacy, explore their emotional difficulties and/or feelings. To support this all classes have a worry box or worry bag. This allows all children access to a resource within their classroom to write down and put their ‘worries’ in. This resource is about showing the child that they do not have to carry their worries around with them and enables their teacher to be aware and offer further support. This resource will still be available for all children that are currently in school.

In order to try to help you we may write and keep some notes and we may share your worry with other trusted adults. This means that we may share your worry with the people at the school that keep you safe or have responsibility for keeping you safe at home.
