These lessons involve both adults and children in order for them to develop social and emotional learning and build positive relationships with one another.
These are the areas we will work on:
Inner Peace: Can you be too nice?
Peaceful Choices: How do we know what is right and wrong?
Peaceful Relationships: Can you respect someone without agreeing with them?
Peaceful Actions & Behaviours: Is it OK to fall out with someone?
Peaceful Communities: How can one person make a difference?
The lessons are based on circle time and games.

Below were the Key Questions we explored:
How do Homo Neanderthalensis and Homo Sapiens compare?
What were our ancestors hunting strategies?
Other than stone, what were ancient tools made from?
Why was the neolithic period so important to our development?
These were some of the activities that took place on the day:
The children used the supplied resources to make their own
stone age tools.
Making predictions: The children sketched and made a prediction
of what the tool heads are for. Once the children had made
their predictions they explained what organic materials
was missing from the tool.
