The term Emotional Literacy refers to the ability to recognise, understand, handle and appropriately express emotions.

There are five main aspects of emotional intelligence which, when developed, lead to children becoming emotionally literate. 

  1. Knowing emotions. A child recognises a feeling as it happens.
  2. Managing emotions. A child has ways of reassuring themselves when they feel anxious or upset.
  3. Self-Motivation. A child is in charge of their emotions, rather than controlled by them.
  4. Empathy. A child is aware of what another person is feeling.
  5. Handling relationships. A child is able to build relationships with others.
