Racism and Black Lives Matter resources

To help children understand recent events, The Economist Educational Foundation have produced two resources on racism and the Black Lives Matter movement. They also include advice on managing sensitive conversations with young people, and are designed for use both at home and in school.

 

Normally, at this time of year, the Wimbledon tennis championships would be taking place. For the children in school, it is Healthy Living Week too. You will find lots of activities, to keep you busy that are linked to both events. Healthy Living Week isn't just about a healthy body but a healthy mind too.
