Show Racism the Red Card!

Year 6 were visited by Valerie and Tina from the charity Show Racism the Red Card. Throughout the workshop we talked about the definition of racism and where it comes from. Also, the children thought about the idea of a World View and prejudicial attitudes. It was really interesting to consider the media and its affect on our thoughts: can you believe everything you read in a newspaper or see online?

Finally, we were given a lot of words to sort in to groups according to whether we thought they were offensive, could be offensive or not offensive at all. In doing so, we were taught about the origins of some of the words.

The workshop was incredibly informative and enjoyable. All of the children approached it with respect and a mature attitude. It is now our job to spread these messages every day!
