We had a great energiser, where we had to work together.

We talked about how we might feel before starting something challenging... then the feelings we might have throughout... and then almost at the end.
We discussed the feelings or emotions inside. What we felt like inside!

We have to show resilience, self control and manage our emotions to keep on going. 
If we have a goal to achieve, no matter what it is, we have to keep going. We wrote a letter to ourselves to give us positive encouragement to keep us going...

Self control

Keeping calm and in control,
Helps us all to reach our goals.

We are learning to be resilient by showing self control. We played a game where we had to try and throw the beanbags in the bucket. 

It was really hard to get them in. Sometimes the bucket tipped over... Noah and Kareem managed to get all 3 beanbags in the bucket! - Noah did this twice!
When we missed, it was frustrating, but the more we kept trying the better we got.

Frustration and anger is s little bit like a balloon. Sometimes it takes one more thing... and we get frustrated. If we leave it unmanaged it gets bigger and bigger and it can pop.

We are talking about anger and frustration. They are emotions that happen so we are talking about how to deal with them.

We had a fantastic game to begin today, where we got really excited 

Reece & Owen role-played a scenario where there was friction between them... we thought it was s real argument, where Reece wasn't very nice and embarrassed Owen in front of us.  We talked about managing our emotions. There are a range of different emotions that went on during the scenario: angry, stressed, confused, awkward, worried.

We talked about the consequences of not managing our emotions. 
- causing a divide.
- impacting on other Kiwi Can leaders.
- losing our job.
- getting in trouble.

We talked about better ways of dealing with the situation, so that the problems don't occur.

"Sometimes I'm happy. Sometimes I'm sad.
Sometimes I'm angry, sometimes I'm mad.
I have to remember, every day, 
To deal with feelings in a positive way."

Our focus is to be really resilient and ignore distractions.

We played bench ball, which really tested our resilience because we sometimes dropped the ball. The no goose guarding team made it fairer.
There were some questionable moments where people felt others weren't fair, and our competitive natures came out.
We talked about the emotions we felt while playing the game!

Siona explained to us about Diwali - the Indian Festival of Lights. 
As part of the celebrations, sweets are made. The type of sweet is different, depending on the part of India you are from. 
Siona is performing at the Horncastle Arena as part of the celebration.
