There is no need to create a research page. Just pause to look at the cards in the videos below and talk together about who they are for, what it would be used for, what they are made from and anything else you notice about how it has been made etc.

Week 2 - Keep calm and carry on


This week we were learning about several Giant's who didn't keep their cool. 

If we don't find ways to get our anger and frustration out in a safe and appropriate way, we can get hurt and we can end up hurting others and we can land ourselves in trouble. Often we end up feeling worse than we did before. Today we are going to find ways to tackle these feelings and deal with them in positive and safe ways.
