Encourage reading and raise money for children in Africa
Read to Feed is a great way to both get your pupils reading more and raising money for children in Africa through Send a Cow. Not only that, the books that they read can be linked to learning about Africa and the environment. The pack contains all you need to get your class going: bookmarks with stickers to keep children focussed, sponsorship forms and certificates to reward them. You can order a pack in the Order and sign up page., but to keep our costs down we ask that you please only order if you are definitely going to use it.
Four Art lessons exploring storytelling
A series of lessons adapted from the QCA Art unit Viewpoints - bringing cross-curricular links from PSHE and English to an interesting Art project. The lessons include looking at a Send a Cow story creatively, along with storyboarding and photography activities.
Make a TV ad for Send a Cow.
Pupils script and narrate their own TV advert for Send a Cow in this lesson idea - they will learn about communicating to an audience and using different forms of media.
A recount with a twist.
A mystery storyteller narrates this recount, which will get heads scratching for a while. Clues are placed throughout the story, allowing pupils to deduce what it is all about. Plenty of ideas are suggested of how to work this into your curriculum in an engaging way.
Imagine life through a cow's eyes!
Allow pupils’ imaginations to come alive in this creative writing lesson. They put themselves in an animals’ skin, so to speak - seeing things from their perspective and imagining what life would be like for a cow in Africa!
