All classes across our school are continuing to explore Empathy through stories from the Empathy booklist. The aims of the project are to develop reading for pleasure, develop empathy skills and to demonstrate social action.
All classes have an empathy lesson each week and we have all been learning empathy vocabulary. We use the wonderful stories and characters to help us learn about each other and understand why we feel emotions they way we do.
When visitors come to the school, they often comment on the lovely atmosphere and our Police Education Officer has been extremely impressed with the empathy that some classes have shown and the words they used to describe emotions.
