Grandparents whose cow helps many children
This older couple help to look after their 12 grandchildren. Their case study highlights the importance of looking after children who have lost their parents as a result of disease and conflict. The ‘Milk & Veg’ assembly is linked to this story and the couple appear on the blue poster.
How a cow changed a family forever
Using Theresa and Kobwemi’s story, this assembly highlights the huge difference a cow can make to a family - from the amount of milk produced and the increase in vegetables. The theme of the assembly incorporates the importance of healthy eating and drinking milk for children in the UK and links in well with QCA Unit 3A - Teeth and eating.
