understanding what others are feeling because you have experienced it yourself or you can imagine experiencing it.
You can, 'put yourself in their shoes.’
This is a word that children may not have come across before, although many of them might already be very good at showing it. A video that they will be watching in school can also be shared by you at home as it gives a really clear explanation as to what empathy is - do take a look.
If you would like to see how else we will be sharing this value in school, take a look at the assembly in full on the values part of our website here. You will also be able to see which children received nominations and certificates from their teachers for last month's value of 'self-belief'.
