Our Empathy Exhibition

One of the many stimulating activities in the EmpathyLab 2021 Empathy Day Family Activities Pack was the suggestion to create an Empathy Family Exhibition; we decided to try this in school too.

In their Empathy Exhibition, pupils shared some of the items most precious to them, and explained why they’re so special to them.

Beautiful, thoughtful and poignant, each piece of writing shows connections between their chosen item, themselves, their families, their friends and their pets.

Click on any of the speech bubbles to see the original piece of work written by the pupil. Click again (or use your browser’s Back button) to come back to this page.
