Key Stage 1 - Celebrating Diversity

Hi! Welcome to 'Buddy Up!' Online and Celebrating Diversity.

 

On this page, you'll find 4 episodes of fun, stories & activities that can be accessed in class or at home.

Celebrating Diversity is an engaging and educational journey through the themes of identity, emotional wellbeing, empathy & diversity.

 

The programme is designed for Key Stage 1 and fully aligns with the NI Personal Development & Mutual Understanding (PDMU) curriculum.

We've also developed a teacher guide featuring tips and tricks for online school partnership working.
