What is global citizenship and how can it be used in classrooms?

Our Primary School resources introduce global citizenship into your curriculum, helping pupils learn about Malawi, to respect and understand differences and similarities between our cultures, how charitable organisations such as Open Arms can make a difference, and encouraging pupils to think about how they can play their part in our global society.

Our resources contain fun, interactive lesson plans, powerpoint slides, printable resources and teacher notes.  They aim to meet part of the PSHE Citizenship curriculum and Ofsted’s personal development assessment, as well as forming a great introduction to Sustainable Development Goals. More resources on Sustainable Development Goals are available in our secondary school’s resource pack.

All our resources and lesson plans are completely free, as we feel passionately about teaching children about Malawi and broadening their awareness of global issues.  We also offer workshops and assemblies, so please get in contact if you would like us to visit your school.

Request your primary schools resources pack by contacting us today.

Of course, we’d love it if your school feels inspired to get involved in fundraising for Open Arms; we’re here to help in any way we can.  To start you off download our Schools Fundraising Pack for lots of fundraising ideas and tools. Check out our Love, Nurture, Grow campaign, for a fun creative way to fundraise.
