Culture Club is a free primary education pack exploring the cultural heritage and traditions of refugees living in London. Through five lessons and practical activities including oral storytelling, weaving, mosaic design, tasting, cooking, and much more, pupils journey from country to country to learn about refugees’ cultural heritage.
Made by teachers for teachers, this pack links to the national primary school curriculum, enabling pupils from ages 4-11 to discover the joys of various cultures through videos, storytelling, crafts and recipes from different backgrounds. Whether pupils are home-learning or in the classroom, Culture Clubs takes students on a journey of cultural experiences from the kitchen to the garden.
The pack hopes to broaden the minds of youth today, opening their eyes to the various cultures of many refugees that now reside in the UK, while helping to develop a cohesive and accepting environment where different communities can come together and share their traditions and values.
Although designed for Key Stage 2, the lessons can be differentiated for Key Stage 1/EYFS.
