Keys to Alcohol for children aged 7 to 11 years old
The aim of the four 'Keys To...' resources is to provide key sessions on important health issues that may be used in mainstream Primary and Secondary Schools and that are inclusive of children and young people with a visual impairment. All pupil/student sheets are in large font, with a FREE CD Rom included that will enable the pupils/students to increase/decrease the font as required.
Each resource contains ten key sessions covering aspects of knowledge and understanding, attitudes and skills development with activities utilising a variety of learning styles.
The approach enables schools to deliver the main aspects of drugs education as recommended by all the major guidance documents for schools.
'Keys to alcohol...' for children aged 7-11 years old.
Several large scale surveys have confirmed that many children begin drinking alcohol between the ages of 8-12 years, although very few will drink on a regular basis. This resource is, therefore, highly relevant for all children in Primary Schools. In addition, the importance of informing and involving parents/carers has been acknowledged through specific activities and other links.
The resource includes the following sessions:
What do you already know about alcohol?
What happens to alcohol in the body?
What are some of the risks of drinking alcohol now and in the future?
When and how is it best to say no to alcohol?
How can you find out more about alcohol?
“I thought it was very good. It includes everything a teacher would need, including information to give parents. There is a good range of activities and a good fact base for teachers. I like the detailed plans, the prompt sheets and the pupil activity sheets.”
