Roots of Empathy is a very special programme. We are proud to be running it here in Scoil Chormaic for our second year. Through the programme, we learn how to understand our feelings, and the feelings of others too! This is called Empathy.
Roots of Empathy in Ms. Duffy’s class is going very well. We are very lucky to have a wonderful Roots of Empathy family visiting us regularly here in Scoil Chormaic CNS. Ms. Duffy’s class are very observant, and very good listeners. They have learned so much about our Roots of Empathy baby during the past three months. We now know more about crying, about caring for the baby and about how our baby communicates. He has grown stronger and we have noticed developments each time he visits. We think it will be very exciting to observe his growth and development in the new year.
This month we talked about feelings and emotions, we learned about the baby’s feelings and how he communicates his emotions. His Mum answered lots of our questions. We had a very good discussion about our own feelings. We learned how we can help ourselves, and how to help others when we are experiencing tricky feelings.
