Are you feeling worried about something?

With everything that is happening at the moment, it is perfectly normal to be worried. If there are things which are making you feel sad, angry or upset then there are people you can talk to and some wonderful resources to help you.

Our Worry Box has now been closed for the Summer Holidays but we have compiled some links and techniques to help you cope with any emotions you are struggling with.

Writing - Above the Sky

Have a look at the picture below.

Once you have studied it, you could think about:

  • What can you see?
  • Who is the woman?
  • Why is she holding an umbrella and a bag?
  • Where did she come from? Where is she going?
  • How can she survive here?
  • What might she be thinking at this moment?
  • If you could ask her a question, what would you ask?

Activity:

  • Imagine you could go ‘above the sky’. How would you describe what you could see to someone who wasn’t with you? You could pole play/write the conversation you might have with someone over the radio.
  • You could write a poem describing the view from above the sky.
