Hi,just wondering if anyone has dealt with the bereavement of a sibling of a child in their class. I currently teach 4th class and recently one of my pupils lost a sibling. The situation was quite sensitive as it was known that the sibling wouldn´t survive once born but yet had to go the full 9 months. I have to say the child has been amazing as regards talking about it, he/she has been very open to me about the topic and the sibling is always spoke about with a smile on the child´s face. I was wondering if anyone has dealt with a similiar situation and hoping to get advice on how to deal with the topic in class as I was hoping to do something in class in memory of the baby. Thanks.
