Emotional Learning Cards

Contemporary art can enliven and enrich social and personal learning. The cards in this boxed-set feature high quality reproductions of contemporary artworks by culturally-diverse artists along with questions relating to the images. They creatively bring to the surface themes that are central to emotional literacy including:

- understanding relationships;
- preparing for change and transition;
- acknowledging and working through losses;
- thinking about social, personal and cultural identities;
- identifying emotions and learning how to express them.

The boxed-set also includes a booklet that provides a range of suggestions on how the cards can be used in their own right or as the starting point for creative projects.

The resource meets curriculum requirements especially in Art and Design, Design and Technology, Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) and Literacy. It can be used with all age groups from Key Stage 2 upwards and is particularly recommended for:

- years 5 and 6 pupils on the cusp of adolescence and preparing for significant changes (including the transfer to secondary school);
- secondary pupils who are navigating a series of changes associated with adolescence;
- young people in therapy settings;
- refugee children who are settling into new environments and may welcome the opportunity to make sense of their experiences.
