Taking Drugs Literally is an innovative programme for primary pupils, introducing drug education via literacy work. An essential timesaver for teachers, the programme is based around a printed resource for classroom use, with activities for years 3, 4, 5 and 6, all clearly signposted to the Literacy framework. There are also home activities to enable schools to further strengthen their home school links. The classroom activities are also published in a separate pupil's book which can be purchased in bulk. There is an optional Big Book available to purchase which supports the teaching pack. The Taking Drugs Literally website and the teaching pack can both be personalised for LEAs to support teachers with local information.
