“Put your hand on your heart and take a deep breath.
Can you feel it beating?
It beats because your heart is full of love!
Your heart is full of love from mummy, daddy, brother, sister, grandparents & friends.
If you look closely you can even see that each persons love has it’s own colour!
What colours do you see?
Love is in your heart because it goes with you wherever you go.
Even at school!
Even at the park!
Even when Mummy is at work!
My love is in your heart wherever you go.
Anytime you miss me, you can put your hand on your heart, and there you can feel all of my love with you.
You can even speak to that love!
You can see, if you look very closely, my love and your love giving hugs to each other all day long.
I can feel your love in my heart too – can you feel? (Hand on chest to feel heart beating).
You are safe,
You are safe because you have all of this love in your heart.
And when you are loved it’s easy to be brave!
Did you know that you can be scared and brave at the same time?!
You can use all of that love in your heart to be brave.
Imagine what school could be like when you feel happy, safe and loved.
What kind of fun could you have!
(Go through some scenarios).
Remember I am right there in your heart wherever you go,
we can’t see each other, but we can feel each other – all day long!”
Finish with some questions –
“can you feel my love?
do you think my love will be there when you…..
what colour is my love?
what colour is your love in my heart?
What will school be like when you’re so full of love happiness is bursting out of you!?”
