Teaching materials ages 6-9

Teaching materials are focused on building socio-emotional skills in the classroom with the aim of allowing students and teachers to co-create a peaceful classroom environment where children are able to celebrate their differences.

The activities are linked as much as possible to the experiences of children themselves and what their home life is like.

Video and audio materials for this age group tell stories of a refugee child of the same age as the pupils through discussion of upbeat, familiar and relevant topics such as home-life, hobbies, toys, new school life and future dreams.
