Developing Emotions is a pioneering programme of lessons designed to promote emotional literacy and emotional awareness in school children. It has been developed as a collaboration between the Centre for the History of the Emotions at Queen Mary University of London and TKAT.

There are six units in Developing Emotions, covering topics including sadness, joy, tears, laughter, anger, revenge, anxiety, love and friendship. It is a cross-curricular programme with an emphasis on the history of emotions, literacy, vocabulary, and the creative arts. It also covers topics in PSHE, science, and philosophy. The Developing Emotions pilot programme, taking place between February and April 2020, is being run in TKAT schools.

Teachers from other schools interested in viewing and using the teaching materials can register their interest here to be given access to the lesson plans, PowerPoints, and worksheets. Each unit is made up of 3 lessons (of about 30 minutes each), and at present materials have been developed for use with Year 3 and Year 5 classes. The pilot materials are free to download and use for teachers who register with us.
