COVERING NUMEROUS IMPORTANT THEMES
Lyfta is designed to make it easier for teachers to delve into complex themes and topics that can be difficult to introduce and teach.
Please see a list of the themes covered in our lesson and assembly plans.
Lyfta's learning resources include online self-assessments, which schools can use to track how pupils develop. Schools that have been using Lyfta in the UK and Finland have seen a positive change in pupils' attitudes towards people from different cultural backgrounds.
