During year 6 Thrive sessions, we have been discussing the different types of emotions humans have.

We have discussed that all humans have seven basic emotions: love, joy , surprise, sadness , anger , fear and disgust. If you’ve seen the film Inside Out you may recognise these as core emotions.

However, there are so many other feelings we may have, for example, sympathy, happiness, blame , gratitude and we’ve been deciding under which basic emotion does this come from. As well as, talking about ways we can regulate these emotions.
