Failte Malawi

A global citizenship resource for primary schools

KS1: ages 5-7KS2: ages 7-11Teacher's PackCD-ROMImage

Designed to support Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland, the activities in this pack encourage primary school teachers and their pupils to explore the links and commonalities that are shared between Scotland and Malawi.

It uses Malawi as a context for learning about rights, exploring Global Citizenship and challenging perceptions of the world beyond the everyday experience of most pupils and teachers in Scotland.

With a focus on children’s rights, the pack covers four topics: water, food and farming, houses and homes, toys and play. By exploring how these key needs are met in Malawi, pupils learn more about themselves and their own communities.

A variety of active learning methods support pupils in reflecting on their perceptions of Malawi and thinking about how their attitudes and opinions are challenged as they learn.

The resource links in to curriculum areas such as Enterprise, Expressive Arts, PSD, Religious & Moral Education, Science, Social Studies (people, place and environment), Technology & Design. Literacy, numeracy and health & wellbeing have also been built in across the resource.

The pack consists of a booklet with sample activities, plus a CD-ROM with the full resource, activity sheets and a wealth of colourful images.
