This resource pack for KS3 (age 11-14) pupils is about climate change and the effects it will have on people around the world. It emphasises the increasing unpredictability of the weather and explores ways people might prepare for the, apparently inevitable, ‘wild weather’ - floods and droughts. It also introduces the notion of food security.

An assembly is a great way to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight or let everyone know about the activities and events the Fairtrade Group are planning for the whole school.

Learning through Fairtrade opens up a fascinating world, revealing how we are all connected. As well as being thought provoking for children and adults alike it provides endless opportunities for learning, discussion and even to make long lasting change for the better.

This assembly explains that we are all eating too much sugar, a kind of fat called saturated fat, and salt. There are surprising amounts of sugar, saturated fat and salt in the everyday food and drinks we enjoy. We might seem fine on the outside, but too much sugar and saturated fat can lead to the build-up of harmful fat on the inside that we can’t see. This fat can cause serious diseases in the future.
