Emotional literacy is the ability to understand and recognise your own emotions through a level of self-awareness. As curriculums continue to place a greater emphasis on RSE and Health learning, the benefits of teaching emotional literacy in children can be far reaching. This webinar is for those working in mental health, behavioural support and RSE and Health learning. It provides an understanding of the importance of emotional literacy, especially for pupil development and good mental health, as well as explaining the benefits of implementing emotional literacy through taking a more whole school approach.

Teaching Emotional LiteracyThis was a good explanation of how not having the vocabulary to explain feelings can impact on young children. The ideas and resources will be a great help for us to develop this in our school. Giving children the knowledge and understanding of how to self regulate their emotions will ultimately aid their learning and self-esteem.Susannah Routledge, TA - Chapel Street Primary School
Teaching Emotional LiteracyEmotional literacy is the bedrock and foundation of good behaviour and problem solving. Reflection is a key concept. The 7 ‘learnable Skills’ of resilience are really useful. Students between 4 –18 only use 5-7 words to describe their emotions. Teaching vocabulary to express emotion in such a way that a student understands is key to reducing frustrations. The vocabulary wheel shown is excellent. The emphasis on the importance of calm is a crucial strategy. This is an excellent webinar with many practical strategies to consider.Richard Stroud - The Forest High School
