Show Racism the Red Card

14th June 2013
Trevor Benjamin, who played for England 21s, visited our Year 5 & 6 classes last Friday.  We explored racist language and what makes it inappropriate and offensive.  We also learned about what racism is and why racist bullying is different to normal bullying
 
Trevor challenged our preconceptions around skin colour and facial features by showing us photographs of real people and having us guess things about them.  We got lots of things wrong which really made us think!
 
We also got to play some fun football in the lovely summer weather!
