Tuesday - Empathy Day

Today Tuesday 9th June is Empathy Day.


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 link to  pack of family activities,  please complete one of these this afternoon.
