This teacher pack is designed to support Island School teachers who are embarking on the first year of the Island School Educational Programme together with their pupils. How the programme works as a whole is explained in more detail below. The teacher pack provides lesson or ‘session’ plans, which can be used as flexibly as you’d like. Feel free to make use of the materials in the ‘additional materials’ section of the pack or integrate your own materials. Take as long or short as you like to follow the programme in coordination with your partner school. And most importantly: have fun and follow the pupils’ curiosity!
