Guidance for delivering the programme

The pack comprises of 7 themes:

  • Topic A - Setting the Scene
  • Topic B - History of Tobacco
  • Topic C - Health Effects of Smoking
  • Topic D - Secondhand Smoke
  • Topic E - Cost of Tobacco (Global and Local)
  • Topic F - Influences on Smoking
  • (Media and Peer Pressure)
  • Topic G - Extending Children's Learning through the Arts

It is recommended that delivery starts with 'Topic A – Setting the Scene' as this introduces learning on tobacco and gathers children's knowledge on the topic. Teachers may then wish to explore a particular topic based on pupils' interests or to select lessons from each topic. Further support and information, as well as resources to support the delivery of the lessons are available by E Mailing [email protected]
