It’s Ms Thomas here. I hope you are well.
You may have seen in the news the recent protests over the death of George Floyd and the coming together of people to reject racism.
The Newsround Special on Racism offers a good explanation of these issues.
De’Graft presents a Newsround special programme all about fairness, protest and people coming together to reject racism.
Philosophy for Children (P4C) offers us great opportunities to discuss difficult issues in the news. I have attached another Hometalk document, which focusses on fairness, inequality and injustice. There are some excellent ideas for discussion, sorted into age groups, so there is something for everyone.
What do you think is the way forward for society? What can we do in schools to counter racism?
I would love to hear your opinions.
Hope to see you all soon.
