The Commonwealth Class – Education Pack

The Commonwealth Class education pack is a flexible resource that can be used to support individual projects or joint curriculum work with a partner school.

  2. Dear Preeti,

    You can download the pack from the British Council website by clicking on this link – The pack has been designed to support cross-Commonwealth dialogue and educate about the world around us. It contains a range of activities which can be used on their own or as part of wider curricular activity; although it’s aimed at 7-14 year olds, it can be adapted for use with younger or older learners.
