Value of the Month

-October-

Emotional Literacy

The value for October is Habit 1 of our empathy project; Emotional literacy – this is the gateway to teaching children about empathy. It is ensuring children can recognise and understand the feelings and needs of others through their body language, tone of voice, facial expressions and words.
This means teaching children to look at each other when they are speaking, encouraging children to share and talk about their feelings and developing a feelings vocabulary.
