Cherrywood Community Primary School


The Colour Monster


As part of our mental health & wellbeing programme we have introduced a colour monster check in for each class. This is based on the book The Colour Monster by Anna LLenas. Each child in every class has an opportunity to check-in with their emotions at different points of the day. This then gives the adults in the classroom the chance to talk to a child and help them to manage that emotion. The colour monster shows pupils that we all may have different feelings and that any feeling is ok as long as we can learn to manage it.
