Red Nose Day teaching resources
On Friday 13 March schools up and down the country will be doing something funny for money. Those funds will help transform the lives of countless people living in poverty in the UK and across Africa.
The Red Nose Day team have done their homework and created a wealth of free curriculum-linked activities and fundraising resources to give you all that you need to make Red Nose Day a fun, engaging and valuable experience for your pupils.
