The UN and world peace

The UN and world peace

This lesson explores the role of the United Nations and assesses whether or not it has fulfilled its aims. There are a lot of resources here to use, they aim to explain to the pupils not only the role of the UN, but also its aims, its successes and its failures. The pupils also have a past exam answer to mark, and attempt for themselves to assess what they have learned. A fast paced, challenging, interesting and comprehensive lesson.

Why do we punish people - Theories of Punishment

Why do we punish people - Theories of Punishment

A fascinating lesson that looks at the four main theories of why we use punishment. -Deterrent -Retribution -Protection -Reform It looks at case studies as to how effective the student think these theories are, and it prepares the students for an essay quesion (which can be peer assessed at the end of the lesson) A highly useful introduction to the idea of law and order in society. Originally created for a RS lesson, but can be used forHistory, PSHE or Citizenship. I have also included an interesting article from the Guardian that disusses why prison doesn't work. It can be used as lesson prep, or as an extension for brighter/older pupils.

Assembly/ play about conscientious objectors in WW1 suitable for upper KS2

Assembly/ play about conscientious objectors in WW1 suitable for upper KS2

We performed this short (15-20 minute) play to parents and the whole school as a 'celebration assembly' to show our learning about WW1. There are parts for a whole class of varying lengths. The powerpoint was shown while parents were coming in and during the performance. The pupils wrote speeches in role as conscientious objectors, some of which were incorporated into the play, (one could substitute your own pupils' speeches.) The play also raises many SMSC /philosophical questions using the WW1 context.
