On Tuesday we were invited to take our Year 5s to the Vitality stadium to engage in a Premier League education program – ‘Show Racism the Red Card’. This work ties in strongly with our PSHE curriculum and also with the fundamental British Values.
The children heard a talk from Shona who discussed what Racism is and why it is OK to notice difference but not OK to treat people unequally because of it. We then watched a video with many famous footballers describing their experiences or sharing advice, before having the opportunity to put questions to a panel including Bournemouth first team player Dan Gosling! Everyone was able to have a signed photo and was given a goodie bag to take away with more information.
