Friday saw the return of our mixed classes focusing on elements of emotional intelligence, growth mindset, meta-cognition and thinking skills. This session was focused on emotional intelligence and in particular recognising emotions in others as well as our own emotions. After some discussion about various emotions and what they look like, the children were set the task of roleplaying various scenarios, considering the emotions involved. Finally the children made selfies of what they think their facial expression would be in various situations. Learning such skills help the children to work in teams effectively and show empathy to others.
