The highlight of our week was a visit from Anne Frank Trust!
We unpicked the following terms throughout a variety of activities:
Prejudice: pre-judging people without knowledge
Discrimination: acting upon your prejudice and treating people unfairly
Genocide: organised execution of people planned on a large scale
Stereotype: Labelling a group of people rather than considering each person’s individuality
Identity: who you are e.g. what you look like, your personal information, talents and interests, culture and religion.
Dictator: a ruler with total power over a country (Hitler, Kim Jon Un)
We used the Holocaust and Anne Frank’s diary entries to discuss the prejudice and discrimination she and many other Jews faced and which unltimately led to her death.
We then linked our learning to our curriculum unit of ‘Heroes & Villains’ and discussed how we can become heroes and challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination to make the future a better place.
Here are some questions for you to reflect upon:
– Why is it dangerous to stereotype?
– What groups are discriminated against?
– What things could make you a poor digital citizen?
– What things can you do to become a good digital citizen?
– What gift would you give to someone who was behaving in a discriminatory way?
