4 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.
In this session we will read books on the topic of homelessness. Participants will then have the opportunity to make their own challah bread. Participants can make two loaves, one to take away and bake at home, and the second will be baked at the Jewish Museum and donated to a local homeless shelter.
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.
