Curriculum resources exploring cultural understanding, media literacy and community

Each booklet below is based on the first-hand experiences of young people who participated in two expeditions in 2010, Journey to the UK and Journey to Pakistan. The resources are aimed at secondary school pupils and expand on themes and topics explored during both journeys. They can be used for teaching National Curriculum topics at Key Stage 3 and 4 English, Religious Studies, Citizenship and PSHE.

Assembly and form ideas

A series of assembly and form ideas based on the journey of 6 young people from the UK to Pakistan. Each assembly is based around a video that the team made exploring an aspect of Pakistan. The issues covered range from media, history and faith to arts, child labour and social change.
