Reflection: Emotional responses

Summary of task

Students participated in a games unit focusing on social interactions and emotions. They identified their own and others' emotions using a classroom chart of ‘feelings faces’. Students identified how their reactions might make others feel, talked about how they could work with others cooperatively and shared strategies for solving problems that might occur.

Students were asked to identify one or more emotions that they experienced during the lessons and suggest how each emotion might have made others feel. Students were also asked to identify a time when they had to ask for help – during the lessons or at home – and identify caring or helpful things they did during the lessons.

The teacher scribed answers where needed.

This assessment task relates to the focus areas: safety, mental health and wellbeing, and relationships and sexuality.

Achievement standard

By the end of Year 2, students describe changes that occur as they grow older. They recognise how strengths and achievements contribute to identities. They identify how emotional responses impact on others’ feelings. They examine messages related to health decisions and describe how to keep themselves and others healthy, safe and physically active. They identify areas where they can be active and how the body reacts to different physical activities.

Students demonstrate positive ways to interact with others. They select and apply strategies to keep themselves healthy and safe and are able to ask for help with tasks or problems. They demonstrate fundamental movement skills in a variety of movement sequences and situations and test alternatives to solve movement challenges. They perform movement sequences that incorporate the elements of movement.
