The invasion of Ukraine by Russia has understandably caused much anxiety in the world and, as teachers, one of our jobs is to help our pupils to understand what is happening in the world. Many of them will have some idea of what is happening and may have questions. Thankfully, there is some good advice available from experts in the field. The following are links to resources we have found, which might be useful to you:
- Educate Together Resource on Talking About Conflict
- An article from the Irish Times with advice from a psychologist
- An Amercian site with advice on talking to children about war
- The official Department of Education advice from NEPS
