KS 3 & 4 lesson: Give It Up for Comic Relief

An estimated 2 million people in the UK have an addiction to some form of substance or activity and it harms not just them, but also those around them. This lesson plan, linked to PSHE will help your students consider the implications of addiction. Students will recognise the causes, consequences and social perceptions of people who are addicts. The lesson will take an hour, or it can be divided into sessions to be delivered in tutor time.

Fun and games for Red Nose Day

Download our games pack and charge your kids a small fee to put their books away and have a go at these fun games while you kick back and put your feet up. You can also help your pupils understand why they are taking part in Red Nose Day by getting them to fill in their very own pledge. Then, you can display them on the wall or make them into a paperchain.
