Discovering new things about our brains and emotions

Today, we had a special visitor who came into to talk about our brains. Emma'as mum, Sharon, is a psychologist and she told us lots of interesting information about our brains and how they control our emotions and feelings and things we do.
We started the session by trying to solve a paper puzzle, then read a book about the parts of our brain and how plastic our brain is.

Thanks Emma!!
