Below you will find links to everything you should need on the day. Please prepare in advance and run through everything on offer to make the most of the day itself. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not teachers, we are an ethical stationery brand that want to help raise awareness of the issues surrounding global education, and the reasons millions of children are missing out on the schooling they deserve. Each year we put on Share a Pencil Day completely free of charge to help bring this topic to school children across the UK.  Accordingly you may need to double check our lesson plans, be sure everything is there that you need and we haven’t missed anything. That you’ve read through and made the necessary preparations, printed the print outs, linked to or downloaded the films and can access the other resources. Just to be sure. Have a great day……
