Cultural and Festival packs

These packs have been produced by Portsmouth EMAS to develop an understanding of cultural and religious festivals that some of your pupils might celebrate during the year.

They each include a PowerPoint, display materials and activities that can be used in the classroom.

For schools holding an SLA with Portsmouth EMAS, a pack can be borrowed from the centre or alternatively sent electronically for you to develop your own pack to keep in school.

Reminders are sent to all city schools prior to the festival dates to allow you to order packs or prepare new materials.

For information on availability of packs, contact Jordane Faye on 023 9273 3130 or jordane.faye@portsmouthcc.gov.uk.
