This is a downloadable resource - once purchased, it will be available for you to download.

This is a worry train express, a way for younger pupils or pupils with an interest in trains to manage their worries.

It consists of a train with two carriages. The train has a window and some emojis that the pupil can stick into the window to represent how worried they are.

One carriage is for the pupil’s worries. They can write or draw on the tickets.

The other carriage has calming strategies. There are six to try and there are tickets for pupils to come up with their own.

There are two stations to visit. The first station is where worries are talked about and decisions made on whether this worry is in their control or not in their control. They can make a plan if it is in their control(there is a sheet available for writing or drawing).

If the worry is not in their control they continue to the next station where they can leave their worry at the station. The emoji can be changed at this point to perhaps a ‘happy face’.

"ELSA/Learning mentorDebbie's Empathy game is my all time favourite resource. The children learn so much from this game and it has us in stitches every time we play. Debbie you are star, and without planning time would not be able to facilitate as many sessions as I do without your resources. Your resources are a great price especially when I have to purchase them out of my own pocket. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise to enable us to be successful in helping our troubled and complicated children."
