Useful and Engaging

This is a very useful and comprehensive resource. The lesson plans are detailed and well set-out, and contain a good blend of interaction/discussion and personal work. The case studies and scenarios are very relatable and will help children identify certain themes and learn more about themselves through the activities. It is very child-friendly and visually based, which helps keep it engaging. The website is very well laid out as well, and the explanations for planning are well thought through.
