The nature of the Emotion Works ‘spiral’ curriculum is to revisit the key language and cog concepts with your learners over time using different teaching stimuli and a variety of resources.

This is where our EW Library comes in. In this area of the website you’ll find our ever-expanding library of Digital Resources and Practice Ideas, along with our archive of previous programmes..

You will also find our Specialist Training for work with learners with Severe & Complex needs.

This is our archived Literacy Programme from the 2021-22 school session. 

At a time when concerns surrounding the impact of the pandemic on children’s language, communication and learning generally as well as on their mental health and emotional wellbeing, the #ewLiteracy Programme focused on expanding emotional vocabulary, and provided lots of examples for reading and writing activities to help develop emotional literacy and promote emotional wellbeing.


Welcome to our collection of Padlets with lots of ideas to help you deliver the Emotion Works programme using a Literacy stimulus.

Children’s literature is full of #cogtastic opportunities for Emotion Works teaching. In this set of Padlets we’ve pulled together a range of literacy stimuli that can be used to help teach the different aspects of the Emotion Works programme.
