BBC Children in Need teaching resources
Celebrate Children in Need (15 November) and encourage pupils to raise awareness of, and money for, children who aren’t as safe, happy or secure as they are. It’s a great time to reflect on the benefits of being charitable and the problems faced by young people in the UK.
