P.S.H.E- Good to be me –Impulsive behaviour and thinking things through. 

Discuss the notion of ‘impulsive behaviour' - (doing something without thinking first) 

Gather together x2 dolls / teddies / puppets

 

Using 1 puppet, teddy or doll imagine this character doesn't think about what he or she does. 

If something goes wrong she/he gets cross, she/he hits outs and if she’s/ he's happy she jumps and sings. Think about how we think she/he would behave if she/he came to St.Christopher's. What would she/he do if  they came first in a race, they lost a game of snakes and ladders or if someone was unkind to them. (write down your ideas or talk them through with an adult)

 

Now use puppet number 2. This puppet / teddy or doll is a great thinker and if something goes wrong always stops to think about how to make it better. If something good happens they tell people how happy they are. Discuss how you think they would behave if they also came to St. Christopher's – If they came first in a race, they lost a game of snakes and ladder or if someone was unkind to them. (write down your ideas or talk them through with an adult)

 

As children and adults we are often a bit like both of these characters. We can often be 'impulsive' - this is how the first character behaved.

 

We have two parts of our brain – we can do the first thing that comes into our heads and act on our feelings straight away (character 1) or we can stop think things through and find better ways of doing things. (character 2)

 

ACTIVITY – Produce a poster showing character 1 thinking and then character 2 thinking. perhaps you could create your own scenario showing the right and the wrong way to react. 

 

Now Discuss with an adult  which behaviour  you think is the most positive and will allow people to achieve their goals. To make things work we might need to use both parts of our brain. Our thinking brain helps us to make sense of what we are feeling, and helps us to choose what we should do.
