'Buddy Up!' Online
Key Stage 2 -
Knowing Me, Knowing You
Hi! Welcome to 'Buddy Up!' Online and Knowing Me, Knowing You.
This online programme includes videos, quizzes, and art activities that can be accessed in class or at home.
Knowing Me, Knowing You is an engaging and educational journey through the themes of identity (at individual, community & cultural level), conflict, symbols, emblems & diversity.
It is designed for Key Stage 2 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.
Scroll down for a week-by-week overview of Knowing Me, Knowing You and to access all the available videos and worksheets.
We hope you enjoy 'Buddy Up!' Online!
