Minera Voluntary Aided Primary School

Activity 1- Thoughts, feelings and actions

What we think affects how we feel, and what we feel affects what we do. This can be a positive process of a negative process.

Let's look at this more closely. Marie was about to start a new school. She was worried she wouldn't make any friends and no one would like her. When she arrived at school Marie felt so sad that she sat in the corner of the playground and didn't want to play with anyone.


Let's try and change this...


Marie was about to start a new school. She thought about all the new friends she would make, she was very excited, so she bounced in to school with a big smile on her face. She played with several children and made some great new friends.

Now let's try...

Look at the worksheets and guidance sent to you on Seesaw.


Think about something that has happened recently where your thoughts affected the way you felt and behaved. Try to think about a positive and negative example.


1)Positive Thought                              Positive Feeling                            Positive Action










2) Negative Thought                            Negative Feeling                           Negative Action            









Is this the outcome you wanted? If it's not, how could we change it, look at it again.
