    A 'What If' Monster

    A 'What If' Monster  by Ruth Kenward & Richard Neil - 5 to 9 yrs  (1m 54s)
    _________________________________________

    Theme – anxiety, worry, confidence, strength
    _________________________________________

    Content - Anxiety is imagined as a ‘what if’ monster, confidence is a ‘what if’ buddy. The ‘what if’ monster puts doubt in our minds, and needs to be replaced with the ‘what if’ buddy of confidence that inspires us to have a go in life.  Confidence can be gained by going to people we trust for support and encouragement.  This unusual and quirky song is a brilliant tool to help young children understand anxiety – and they love shouting at the ‘what if’ monster to go away!  Excellent for PSHE.

    This song has a partner story and complete assembly on the same theme.  You can find this in 'Assemblies Alive KS1', which also contains 14 other assemblies, songs and stories.
