AQA 7042 2S Britain - racial tensions in Britain 1951-64

Lesson exploring growin racial tensions due to immigration in Britain 1951-64.
The trio starter recaps previous learning over the unit. Pupils then use the images to explore the experience of ‘new Commonwealth’ immigrants and begin to think about why there would be hostility to immigrants at this time. A video (watch up to election of Wilson) explores the experience immigrants had, leading to a contemporary news report on the Notting Hill riots. Students then read and use the hand out to answer two questions on the ‘issue’ of immigration and the positive and negative impacts. Finally a source plenary allows students to practice analysing content and value of a source relating to the Notting Hill riots.
