SARI – Stand Against Racism and Inequality
Beech and Sycamore class had a lesson via Zoom from the charity SARI (Stand against Racism and Inequality), it focussed on the movement of people around the world through history, together with The many different reasons for migration. The talk Linked closely to our work in Sycamore on WW2, the persecution of Jews and evacuation of Jewish children from Germany as well as both classes work in the Windrush.
A very thought provoking activity required the children to choose 5 ‘things’ they’d pick to migrate with and then having 4 of them removed for various reasons…..It brought home to them the reality of starting life in a new country with close to nothing.
Thanks to Agata Vitale for putting us in touch with the charity. The children had an engaging and interesting lesson.
