Coping with Covid – training sessions for teachers
Coping with Covid was a set of one hour sessions in spring term 2020, funded by Sheffield City Council enabling teachers and school leaders in Sheffield to meet for mutual support and reflection about the pandemic. These were facilitated by DECSY, an independent educational charity that runs P4C courses and wrote the British Council’s new, Learning from a Pandemic teaching resource. The sessions included stimulus activities and discussion around topics such as putting it all in perspective; the science behind infection control; the benefits (and low risks) of vaccination; dealing with misinformation and mental health and well-being. The sessions aim to equip you with greater understanding, practical online activities, videos and animations to use with pupils for assemblies, classroom teaching or for home learning.
If you’d like support to run an online session around one of the themes with pupils/parents (upper KS2 – KS5) then this can also be arranged, subject to availability.
Sessions were and can be delivered by Rob Unwin from DECSY who has a background in teaching, training, resource development and past research experience in immunobiology.
