Oxfam has sent me details about this site…

“Get beneath the glitz of the World Cup… Oxfam has launched a series of free online activities for 9-11 year olds. Bring on the World uses football as a springboard to explore global issues including the sportswear industry, whether competition is ‘a good thing’, and the inequalities between participating countries. It helps pupils learn about the countries involved in the World Cup, and includes a ‘country trumps’ card game, mapwork, debate, and photo activities.

Bring on the World offers teachers the choice of either five mornings (2.5 hours x 5) or five whole days of activities (2.5 + 2 hours x 5) – ideal for an Activity Week in the Summer Term. The resource uses different teaching and learning methodologies which engage all pupils, and emphasises foundation subjects, literacy and English. It develops thinking and debating skills, research abilities, and teamwork. There is comprehensive background information for teachers, and a scheme of work.”
