11 August, 2019 @ 11.00 am - 11.45 am
Explore empathy, emotion and social action through storytelling at our Storytelling: Empathy Sundays. Each workshop will include a storytelling session designed to develop a wide emotional vocabulary and a craft activity to demonstrate how to show empathy in a practical way. Reading books with children is an important and fun way to develop empathy skills and by identifying with characters in stories, children can learn to identify emotions and see things from another point of view. Our Storytelling series focuses on three themes: Homelessness, Environment and Loneliness. Through these themes we aim to give an insight into different people’s feelings and the issues they may face.
Environment: We will read stories about caring for the environment, in particular, focusing on planting seeds and flowers. Participants will help plant some seeds and flowers in planter pots. They will be able to take some home, and the rest will be donated to a local community centre for their garden.
For ages 3 – 8 years.
This is a free event, booking in advance is recommended.
The Learning Programme has received generous support from Lord and Lady Levene of Portsoken.
