In JIGSAW (our PSHE curriculum) this week , we have been talking about things that worry us and make us afraid. We also talk about what we can do to help ourselves and how to help others in these situations.
Your child might want to talk to you about these. They could draw a picture about something that worries them or makes them afraid and then they could talk to you about it and/or bring it into school.
