What will the kids learn and do?
There's so much more to Dressed By The Kids Day than exploring your silly sides. Oxfam has created exclusive, educational resources for your learners to explore the basic needs we all have in common, wherever we live in the world. A range of activities have been expertly created for different primary age groups, with session plans, case studies, a presentation and video. It's a great idea to use these before the day to learn more about what Oxfam does and explore why you're raising money to fight poverty.
On the day itself - all you'll need to do is raid your wardrobes for some seriously silly clothes. Think hilarious hats, fluffy frocks, tartan trousers, sparkly shoes, or even homemade accessories and let your class be as creative as they like.
You could go on to do a fashion show with the other teachers and could even invite the parents to join in with the silliness. You could have a photo shoot or a 'best outfit in class' award - there are so many ways Dressed By The Kids Day can work for your school. The kids could wear their own clothes too!
