literacy this is an unusual and invaluable resource. Developed in
collaboration with Professor Simon Baron-Cohen and using his research on
human emotions Barbara has devised a programme that makes this
accessible and useful in the classroom or small group setting.
identified 412 discreet emotions falling into 24 feeling groups. From
this we have selected 78 and developed a photo library with two examples
of each emotion. One of each is printed in the book for copying and all
are available o the CD-ROM for direct printing. The library is sorted
into age levels that correlate with Key Stages 1 4. At each stage this
book includes activities with aims linked to the programme of study in
Speaking and Listening and PSHE and Citizenship.
An easy to use and fun resource for staff who want to:
• assist young people in recognising emotions
• develop pupil awareness of the importance of understanding emotions
• enhance social and emotional relationships.
