Event description

Description

A one-day event for teachers to learn more about a new, historically-informed and child-led approach to emotions and emotional health.

Catering will be provided and travel grants are available.

This is one of two identical workshops - teachers only need to attend one of them - the alternative event is on Tuesday 13th August.



The emotional health of pupils is an increasingly important concern for both primary and secondary schools in the UK. The ‘Living With Feeling’ project is offering a free workshop and free educational resources to support teachers delivering lessons in this area.

We are a Wellcome Trust funded humanities research project at Queen Mary University of London, led by Professor Thomas Dixon at the Centre for the History of the Emotions, exploring emotional health in history, philosophy and experience.

The new Ofsted Inspection Framework 2019 will include a new judgement category of ‘personal development’, which refers to the importance of character and resilience, while emotions and emotional well-being remain central topics in relationships and sex education and health education.

Statutory guidance mandates teaching the links between physical and mental health; exploring what constitutes a ‘normal’ emotional range; and developing children’s emotional literacy and emotional vocabulary. There is particular attention to the effects of loneliness and isolation.

The project will be working with primary and secondary schools, supporting teachers in the design and delivery of learning materials and activities relating to emotions, emotional literacy, and emotional health. We want to open up historically and culturally informed views of emotions. Our approach is for teaching about emotional health to be led by children's own experiences and ideas.

This workshop will be an opportunity for you to hear more about what resources we can offer, to discuss partnering with us, and to share best practice with other teachers interested in emotional health.

Teachers with responsibility for PSHE and related provision in primary and secondary schools in the UK are welcome to attend, as well as teachers with an interest in delivering lessons about emotions in other parts of the curriculum.
