Today is Empathy Day! Empathy is a vital human force which has come into sharp focus during the current pandemic. Right now, we’ve never needed it more!

The good news is that Empathy is a skill you can learn, and Empathy Day focuses on using books to step into someone else’s shoes. Scientists say that we can train our brain with stories – the more you empathise with characters, the more you understand other people’s feelings.
Have a look at the Family Activity Pack to find out more about how you can celebrate Empathy Day at home.
If you take part in any of the activities included, let us know! It would be great to share your experience with the rest of the St Wystan’s Community.
