Over the last half term, Emerald and Jade classes have been taking part in a special project with the PREVENT team. We have spent our time exploring prejudice and discrimination around the world in the present and past, based on race, religion, age and gender. We now understand the difference between these two terms and how people have fought against them, including Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela and the English Disco Lovers.
For one session we discussed the current refugee crisis and why some people feel the need to travel around the world for a new place to live when there are problems in their homeland.
The past several weeks provided us with a great opportunity to learn new vocabulary, discuss truths, investigate the connections between world religions, find out about the injustices that come from prejudice and how they can be challenged.
Thank-you to Tom for delivering some amazing learning!
