This 4-10 lesson pack of resources (suitable for any student, from year 5-year13) has been a long time in the making being refined and edited through 4 years of teaching about refugees and asylum seekers. It attempts to include anything your school might need to explain the refugee crisis to your students and achieve a certificate as a School of Sanctuary.
22 Files come in this pack which include:
5 lessons + A written assessment which are:
1) What is the refugee crisis and xenophobia
2) Key terms and Mythbusting
3) Why do people seek asylum
4) Moral Duty and Religious Perspectives (SMSC/RE)
5) Taking Action: Be the Change you want to see and SCHOOLS OF SANCTUARY (https://schools.cityofsanctuary.org)
6) Written Assessment
What's more, you also get a compilation of free resources in this pack which are not made by me for your convenience, shared here for educational purposes. This includes: the Amnesty made board game: the great escape, structured role plays, assemblies, the rights of the child card sorts and more. Plenty of scope for differentiation and self directed study/ independent learning skills here, as well as research activities for higher ability students.
You can also use the work your students produce in this pack to get 'School of Sanctuary Status': there are a growing number of schools standing up to say they welcome asylum seekers and refugees. This is great for SMSC, PHSE, and RS as well as diversity and inclusion evidence. To get in touch with your local group, visit www.cityofsanctuary.org , and the criteria for becoming a school of sanctuary is what this short syllabus is built around.
