Helping Children Think About Bereavement helps primary schools start conversations around the emotive subjects of loss, death and dying. It is a ‘before it happens’ book. Dying and death are seen as natural processes and it is OK to talk about them.
The same story and related activities are presented as four lessons plans. These are differentiated for ages 9-11, 7-9, 5-7, children with English as a second language and for those in foundation stage or with learning difficulties.
Sensitive questions are scripted and support material provided by Child Bereavement UK is integrated and wrapped around the lessons.
