New Oxfam Resources

Received an emailed from Is Allen, communications coordinator at Oxfam .

Oxfam has three new education resources available for teachers to tackle issues that are in the news.


Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)

Mid-Point Poster Competition Make posters – win prizes!

Schools are invited to take part in our MDGs mid-point poster competition and win books, a poster set, and a visit to Oxfam HQ in Oxford! Use our great resources about the MDGs to help pupils design their own posters encouraging world leaders to work harder to meet the MDG targets to halve poverty by 2015.

G8 teaching materials

If you or your pupils were involved in Make Poverty History and want to know how world leaders are doing on keeping their promises to reduce debt, make trade fair, and increase aid, these resources will help you. Link your teaching to the current G8 summit, taking place on June 6th, and explore the issues behind the headlines.


Climate change ‘Summer Week’ activities.

Stuck for something to keep your pupils interested after SATs? Our Summer Week activity Climate Chaos: Exploring the Human Cost of Climate Change is here to help. Bring this hugely important global issue to life using our series of lesson plans that are designed to work as a week of cross-curricular themed activities, but can also be used separately.

Aimed at 9-11 year olds, Climate Chaos investigates the causes of climate change, the impacts – particularly on those in developing countries, and how young people’s own choices can make a difference.
