#17DaystoLearn Challenge

We have teamed up with Makematic and Horyou to create a series of challenges to encourage learning about the SDGs and show you ways to take action at home! 

The challenges are aimed at children and young people aged between six to 16 years old. The activities are perfect for parents hoping to bring awareness of the wider world into the home and for teachers to share with their students – but anyone can get involved!

Someone Like Me

Someone Like Me cover
Someone Like Me is an illustrated children's book that tells the stories of children affected by war, natural disaster and extreme poverty.

‘Someone Like Me’ is an illustrated children's book that tells the stories of children affected by war, natural disaster and extreme poverty. It’s a great educational resource that allows children to understand global development issues and what life is like for other children around the world.

SCHOOL CLOSURE UPDATE: You can now download the Someone Like Me book for free. We have also developed some new resources to be used alongside the book at home. They have been specifically tailored for distance learning for senior primary school students. Each folder contains a PowerPoint presentation and an activity sheet to be used at home with minimal supervision (we would urge parents/teachers to read the stories first to ensure they are happy with the content and issues raised). The presentation has an audio recording of a story from the book so a student can read along or just listen and then complete the activity sheet. New activities are being added on a regular basis throughout the school closure period.

Hunger Heroes

The Hunger Heroes programme consists of a series of lesson plans, case studies and classroom activities that have been uniquely tailored for senior primary school students (3rd to 6th class pupils) around the theme of Hunger.

The activities have been designed so that multi-class teachers and teachers of junior primary students will also be able to find activities suitable for their class. There will be a cross-curricular approach in the pack with activity suggestions covering everything from literacy and numeracy to drama and art. Use our Teacher’s Packs to learn more about Hunger, Nutrition, and Development and then take action by organising your very own Hunger Hero fundraiser!
