P2 and P1/2 Enjoy Roots of Empathy

This term we have been able to start our Roots of Empathy lessons, the children have been learning how to understand other people’s feelings and their own. The program has been modified so that the children get to know our Roots of Empathy family: baby Alan and mum Jordan through videos and photographs. The lessons are delivered by instructor Mrs Harris-Toner and our ‘little teacher’ is baby Alan. The children have really enjoyed getting to know baby Alan and hear his news.
The children have shared their experiences of lock down through their artwork and the roles they have at home and in school. Last week the children had lots of fun learning about and demonstrating how baby Alan uses body language to communicate his feelings. 
For more information please ask Mrs Harris-Toner, Mrs McDermot and Miss McArthur. Also check out http://www.rootsofempathy.org
