Kings Lynn, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 23, 2009 -- Shelter, the homelessness and housing charity, has teamed up with Pandora Books â the UKâs leading supplier of childrenâs book collections to schools - to offer customers a FREE Shelter Classroom Kit with every purchase at Pandorabooks.co.uk
The kit includes teacher's resources for Geography, English, History, PE and Drama, and features lesson plans, posters, activities and facts which tie in with core curriculum subjects, in particular with relation to Citizenship. The kit also includes fundraising ideas for children.
Scott Richardson, Director of Pandora Books, says:
'Shelter feels that sometimes the subject of homelessness and bad housing is overlooked in favour of other issues that are a little more comfortable for the media to deal with. Making children aware of the complex problems surrounding homelessness is an investment in the future, and we are happy to help.
Every customer* who places an order on Pandorabooks.co.uk will receive a free copy of the Shelter Classroom Kit, which works across the curriculum, and gives teachers the opportunity to encourage the children in their care to investigate the reasons why people may become homeless, the practicalities of living on the streets, or surviving in a system of temporary of accommodation, and the emotional toll that homelessness and lack of housing has on individuals.
The Shelter Classroom Kit works particularly well with Pandora Booksâ Key Stage 1 PSHE Collections [http://www.pandorabooks.co.uk/ecommerce/primary-projects/key-stage-1-phse-and-citizenship/] and our Key Stage 2 PSHE Collections.
