  10. Helping Children think about Bereavement

    By Heather Butler

    Each year, 3,000 children and young people between the ages of 1 and 19, die as a result of illness or accident. Around 5% of children will have experienced the death of a parent by the time they are 16. Statistics indicate that up to 70% of schools have a bereaved pupil in their care at any given time.

    This book provides a four part differentiated story and activities to help normalize death and allow children to develop emotional literacy to talk about it. The author, along with Child Bereavement UK have devised activities and guidance for teachers on how to use the story to develop children’s emotional literacy and prepare them for bereavement.
