Show Racism the Red Card

Tina and Valerie from show year 5 racism the red card visited on Thursday. We started the morning looking at world views and what influences them. We realised there were lots of outside influences that sometimes help us make decisions. We then played a game called ‘Who am I’. In groups we had to decide on a name, nationality and religion based on just a picture. It was difficult as we didn’t know the person and were making judgement from appearance alone. This led us into a discussion about stereotypes. By stereotyping we are not seeing people as individuals and we are generalising about what they are like. We then heard statements relating to racism and decided if they were true or false. For example, is racism judging someone by their hair colour? What about skin colour? We then thought about racism being a new problem. Tina talked to us about the history of racism. We then finished by looking at words which would have a negative impact and which words would we or should we not use. We thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and learnt a lot about racism and trying to prevent racial abuse.

No child should be treated unfairly on any basis.
