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.
