We can come to you

Leo’s story will help to promote your Key Stage Two pupils’ (Years 5 and 6) spiritual, moral, cultural and mental development. They will be encouraged to undertake research-based learning, engage with objects and learn from survivor testimonies.  Access a unique and extremely popular Personal, Social and Health Education (PHSE) and Citizenship outreach learning programme for primary schools.

Aims

In examining the effects of isolation and persecution, the programme will enable your pupils to develop their understanding of the importance of respecting people who are different from themselves. They will also learn to think critically and independently.

The programme will encourage pupils to:

  • Explore the nature of choices. How do you find out what is important to someone? What gives us our identity? What does it mean to belong?
  • Challenge ideas and perspectives. How do we know if something is true? What questions should we ask? Who decides how people are seen? What is stereotyping? Why is it important to think critically and independently?
  • Engage with ideas, viewpoints and people different from themselves. What is a refugee? Why might people have to leave their home country? How might it feel to leave behind everything that you know?

Objectives

Pupils will be able to do the following by the end of the programme:

  • Describe the experiences of some Jewish children growing up under the Nazi regime.
  • Identify some aspects of the impact of the Nazi regime on the lives of Jewish families and others in the period 1933-38.
  • Explain and analyse some of the choices made by individuals which affected these children, and the consequences of those choices.
  • Understand the importance of respecting the identities of others.
  • Examine their role, and future role, as citizens with responsibilities to others in creating safe, open and accepting communities.
