Teachers who are thinking about the term ahead are encouraged to make use of an on-line lesson plan which focuses on vision care for homeless people.
The plan, prepared by a London teacher, has the breadth to be tailored for a wide age range of children, by using inspiring resource material. This includes the Phil Collins track “Another Day in Paradise”, and an Andrew Motion poem about a prosperous barrister who ends up on the streets in “What is Given”.
As part of the PHSE element of the curriculum it encourage children to think about homelessness and raising funds for the charity Vision Care for Homeless People which has centres in London, Manchester, Brighton and Birmingham. Now in its 12th year, it helps hundreds of dispossessed people to better vision each year.
