Emotionally Literate – Ready to Begin

angryThis week we are really excited about meeting our first group of young people at the Manchester Key Stage 3 Pupil Referral Unit as part of the Research & Development stage of our Emotionally Literate project.

Over the summer we have been looking at how the project fits into the SEAL outcomes for schools and into the PHSE curriculum. Our Artistic Director, Tom Hogan, has been consulting the teachers at the unit to develop workshop plans. Our designer, Nerissa Cargill Thompson, has been busy designing & making a new set of masks especially for the project with worksheets to help the young people to explore the emotions depicted by the masks. We are looking forward to using the masks in the sessions and seeing how the young people respond to them. We are excited about sharing the new designs with you but we are going to keep them under wraps for a little bit longer…
