Science Based Literacy Week: Drugs


This week's literacy lesson are going to be slightly different. As part of the science curriculum, children in Year 6 are required to learn about drugs, including smoking and alcohol so we have decided to use these lessons to teach this to the children; there will also be literacy based activities around the learning for each today.


Today, we would like you to think about smoking and all the different dangers that are associated with smoking. There is also some information about passive smoking and vaping to read about.If you are learning at home, it might be a good idea to have an adult at home with you to discuss some of the information and ask any question. We are also available at any time, if you have any questions about the learning material. 


Once you have looked through the powerpoint, we would like you to create an informative posters that informs young people about the dangerous affects of smoking. There is a success criteria on the powerpoint about possible things to include but try and make it big, bold and impactful! 


We have also included some videos for you to watch below which give you further information about the dangers of smoking. The investigation video is particularly worth watching!
