Innovative lesson plans: 

Humanitarian Aid Scenario - classroom power point slides.  

Lesson Plan - provided by Elen Harris, Sevenoaks School CCF Navy section commander, designed to provide further learning around the RN ethos and core values. 

"Many cadets look forward to their CCF lesson as a way to escape the confines of the classroom so, when the weather forces us inside, it's important that we find fresh ways to make their learning engaging,” says Elen, “This lesson had a very positive impact, with the information race and time limit ensuring that cadets are enthusiastic and having fun, while learning about the RN in the process. It also helped our sixth-form SNCOs to see how a lesson of this kind is planned and delivered, and showed them the level of engagement and enthusiasm that's needed to make them a success."
