Trade Winds Primary School Programme

Content Trade winds is an Interdisciplinary Resource Pack aimed at P5-P7 classes across Greater Glasgow & Clyde Health Board areas.  The programme extends across all curricular areas and correlates with 44 Level 2 experiences and outcomes.  Trade winds offers a holistic approach to tobacco education that goes beyond health and explores issues that are relevant to young people. 

Guidance for delivering the programme

The pack comprises of 7 themes: 

  • Topic A – Setting the Scene 
  • Topic B – History of Tobacco 
  • Topic C – Health Effects of Smoking 
  • Topic D – Secondhand Smoke 
  • Topic E – Cost of Tobacco (Global and Local) 
  • Topic F – Influences on Smoking 
  • (Media and Peer Pressure) 
  • Topic G – Extending Children’s Learning through the Arts 

It is recommended that delivery starts with ‘Topic A – Setting the Scene’ as this introduces learning on tobacco and gathers children’s knowledge on the topic. Teachers may then wish to explore a particular topic based on pupils’ interests or to select lessons from each topic.
