Primary lesson plans

Children grow up in many different kinds of families. Some live with their mum and dad; some are adopted; others have two mums or two dads. All teachers want pupils to be able to talk about their families and to be themselves at school. Here are lesson plans which will help you create an inclusive environment and prepare children for life in 21st century Britain.
