  • Laughter Lab

  • A variety of teacher's notes accompany the video clips in this section, some focusing on one clip and others focusing on several. It is likely that because of the humour used in these clips, Key Stage 3 pupils will find the lessons challenging.

    We would like you to note that the content of the videos in the Laughter Lab could be considered provocative in certain areas. We recommend that teachers view the content before introducing it to a class.
