Polish Language & Culture Education Pack

Contains lesson and assembly plans, factual information and resources on Poland.

The British Council and Polish Cultural Institute in partnership with Dwie Siostry Publishing and Templar Publishing are pleased to present a Polish Language and Culture Education pack for the primary school teachers.
This education pack is designed to help primary teachers introduce aspects of Polish language and culture to their Pupils aged 7–11. It contains lesson and assembly plans, factual information and resources to help pupils develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the rich language, geography and culture of Poland.

The materials are designed to be flexible and adaptable for use in a variety of settings. They can be used as starting points for individual lessons and assemblies or form part of larger cross-curricular joint projects. The Pupils can learn how to greet a friend in Polish and find out about many aspects of Polish culture by using our wide range of classroom resources and activities.

We hope that both Teachers and Pupils enjoy using this pack.

This education pack was produced by the British Council and the Polish Cultural Institute in London, in partnership with Dwie Siostry Publishing and Templar Publishing.
