Keys to Smoking 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 smoking...' for children aged 7-11 years old.

The vast majority of Primary School pupils do not smoke. It is, therefore, the ideal time to introduce the issues and to encourage pupils to consider the benefits of remaining smoke-free in their future life. As in 'Keys to alcohol', the importance of information and involving parents/carers has been acknowledged through specific activities and other links.

The resource includes the following sessions:

  • What is in tobacco smoke?

  • How does smoking affect the body?

  • What are the wider effects of smoking?

  • What are the advantages of being smoke-free?

  • How can you help others to be smoke-free?
