Empathy Day: Tuesday 9th June 


Empathy is very important for us all it helps create happier children, stronger communities and a better world.


We've never needed it more than right now.  are hosting Empathy Day to help everyone understand and experience the power of empathy through books. Scientists say that we can train our brain with stories, as the more we empathise with characters, the more we can understand other people's feelings.


Throughout the day, they will be running brilliant online events and fun home-based activities to help children read, connect and act using empathy. Authors, illustrators, schools, libraries, and families across the UK will be taking part and we'd love for you to join in!


Below I have attached the timetable for live events throughout today and a poster to share with your family explaining what empathy is. 


I have also included a pack of family activities. On this week's timetable I have suggested a couple of activities to try from this pack. There is also a link to some short stories that you could share together and these could form the basis for some of the activities.
