This routine can be performed at home and encourages children to get up and moving while they learn.
In this video, a group of children describes what they do when they feel angry and how they can calm down.
Some of the children describe how their anger feels.
A role-play demonstrates some alternatives to letting anger take over.
A 'traffic lights' system can help children think through their angry moments.
In this video, a child explains his feelings after he has been angry.
An animation explains why sometimes we lose control.
It explains how our thinking brain developed over time and how, when we lived in caves, we needed a fast-acting fight or flight response to danger.
The video looks at how our emotional brain can take over sometimes.
In this section, get children thinking about how they can identify and manage their different emotions.
The activities help to reinforce the descriptions of anger and other emotions contained in the video clips.
