Our Lives

KS1: ages 5-7PDF

Our Lives is a colourful pictorial journey through children’s daily needs. It compares the lives of UK children with other children across the globe, through the topics of family, work, homes, food, water, health, schools and games. The text and pictures show the difficulties encountered by children whose lives are affected by war, long-term famine and natural disasters which result in poverty.

There are discussion points throughout the book, and a Teacher’s Notes section at the back with suggestions for questions to explore cross curricular links. This section also explains that it’s important that children are made aware that in a country where there is poverty, there are also people who do have much better living conditions.
