Lyfta To Teach Global Learning

At Cheam Park Farm, Lyfta is is used as an effective resource for teaching Global Citizenship. It is a digital platform where teachers and pupils access immersive storyworlds and curriculum-based lesson and assembly plans. Lyfta's theme-based learning experiences are ideal for teaching Literacy, PSHE, Global Citizenship and Art, as well as fostering values and skills such as empathy, self-direction and critical thinking.

Lyfta's storyworlds are interactive 360-degree environments that children can explore. They are real places featuring real people whom children can get to know and understand through powerful short documentary films, virtual reality experiences, rich media articles and infographics. Each lesson and assembly is also clearly linked to one or more of the sustainable development goals. Some examples of the environments they can experience are below:

The Awra Amba Experience - children take a trip to a fascinating community in Ethiopia that lives according to democratic and egalitarian principles.

Dinnertime 360 - Families from different cultural backgrounds open their homes to dinner guests, share their meal recipes, and tell their inspiring life stories.

Secrets of the Opera - A visually stunning 360-degree experience invites children to discover the backstage spaces and people behind the shows at the Finnish Opera and Ballet.
