Powerpoint based on Dr. Emily Lovegrove's "Help! I'm being bullied" I developed to work with my MLD class during PSHE sessions and a worksheet to help them think about their self-motto. Session is on building self-esteem and thinking about how we deal with bullying. Hopefully will be one of 3 (not done the others yet!)
Ch 4: LET’S CROSS RELIGIOUS DIVIDES: This part of the course uses the story Pete the Faithful Friend to teach children to cross religious divides. Pete the Faithful Friend is what would describe as “a thinking story”. This story, and the activities that accompany it, is intended to allow children to simply think about the differences and commonality they have as human beings, why some people may be different to them, what those differences might be, and whether the differences are of any significance at all.
This part of the course includes reading, a comprehension plenary session, artwork (which includes illustrating the story and some mandala art – both emphasising co-operative work), written work (which includes writing a prayer for a better world and a research project on an aspect of any chosen religion), games, some IT research, and optional public speaking (allowing class members to explain about their different religious holidays as and when they occur).
This forms part of the ConnectKids course and lesson plans available here on TES and on www.connect-kids.org. ConnectKids is an online education resource that aims to teach primary school children (early Key Stage 2/ 8-10 year-olds) to embrace the gift of diversity, learn tolerance and make this world a better place by starting with themselves. We do this through story. The programme uses stories, and activities around the stories, for schools and parents to teach children to be sensitive to one another’s feelings, cross national, religious, racial and other divides, respect the environment and engage in charitable activities from a young age. We have specifically tailored the material to fit into the UK curriculum’s early Key Stage 2 (i.e. children in the UK aged 8+) PSHE and Citizenship course, but the content also links well to other parts of the curriculum, including English, Art, Geography and RE and can be used on a cross-curricular basis.
