What Matters Most?

Posted on March 17, 2016 by Amy Tolmie

Here is a game to learn about what matters most to you and to those around you, for use with young people aged 11 - 16*.  It can be used in a get to know you session for mentoring, group work, lunch club, tutor time or PHSE lesson and is recommended for groups of 3 - 6 young people. Topics covered include relationships, faith, entertainment, food, global issues and family.

Download board and instructions here. You will need to print these out onto card, and then cut out the square game pieces as described in the instructions. 

*Please be aware there are some social media sites mentioned during this game that are not intended for use with young people under the age of 13 (there's a brief explanation why here). Because of that, we would advise that you switch out those cards with other options or simply remove them if you are using this with 11 and 12 year olds. We are keeping the recommended age as 11-16 as the game works well with Year 6 - Year 8 as well as older years. If you would like to make cards of your own to add to the pack and print them out, the font is Spicy Sushi Roll

Enjoy and let us know how you get on or if you have any ideas of your own to add.  

This game first appeared in our recent 'Getting Started in Schools Pack', which contains lots of ideas for work in schools, a strategy map and links for other great people and projects you should check out. You can access that pack here
