Sarah and the Whammi

A selection of interactive activities, focused on family, bullying, friendships and difference and diversity.

This resource allows children to explore four different topics – family, bullying, friendship and difference and diversity – through interactive activities and through Sarah’s story.

These activities encourage children to identify emotions in themselves and in others, acknowledge the perspectives of others, and learn how to deal with various situations that come up at school and at home.

Please note that because these resources are so extensive, they have not been fully quality-assured by our team. The CCEA is a trusted source for content with its own quality assurance process, so we have still included it. Do read through our guidance for using resources before using this resource.
