Storytelling at Cowes Primary School

Today I had the privilege of storytelling to the grade 2s at Cowes Primary school. 
We discussed resilience, failure and strategies of handling big feelings like when "I feel like my body is going to explode" said one boy. 
We also explored why we wear bike helmets and why Peanut Monkey isn't wearing a bike helmet in the beginning of the story- well observed by one young lad!
Thank you for such an interesting morning and great questions grade twos!
Victorian school curriculum learning outcomes:
