emotion works at school

In this section we provide a specially designed trauma informed programme for Emotion Works roll-out across the Primary School to coincide with the transition back to school for pupils in Scotland.

A week-by-week schedule can be viewed here.

While presented as a 10 ‘week’ programme, the resources & activity ideas can be worked through at a pace to suit your pupils and school. Click on the coloured strips below to see an on overview for each ‘week’.

If you’re new to Emotion Works you may prefer to spread the programme out over a longer period of time, while schools who have been using Emotion Works for a while might progress through on a week by week basis.

Certainly we recommend a settling in and relationship building period before making a start on the core content of the programme.

Don’t forget we’re here to help and support as you work through the teaching programme…

  • There are comment boxes on each of the website pages for your questions and feedback
  • Our members only Emotion Works Practitioners facebook page is an excellent forum for connecting with others also using Emotion Works during this time – but please answer the membership questions to gain access otherwise we won’t be able to process your request
  • Our twitter page @emotionworksCIC will also likely be busy with recovery programme news and tweets over the coming months. If you tweet about the programme please tag us as @emotionworksCIC and using the #EWrecovery hashtag

By week 10 you will have completed your roll-out of the Emotion Works recovery programme.

We will provide suggestions for assessment or you can use your own methods.

Moving forward, depending on the level of cog model reached, the 5-part, 6-part or 7-part model should be used as an everyday classroom reference tool to scaffold discussions about emotions in work tasks and everyday events and experiences.

Consolidation and extension activities should be ongoing to fully embed the approach across your school.

As we approach the end of the programme we will be sharing news and ideas for practice sharing celebrations and showcase events across the community.
