Want The Journey to come to you?

Our unique outreach learning programme for Key Stage Two is based on our award-winning exhibition and provides pupils with an immersive learning experience in which they will experience light bulb moments. Curriculum links: History, RE, World War II, Literacy, Citizenship and PSHE. This is a day’s workshop and our educator will come to you.

Owston Park Primary Academy feedback:

“The workshop delivered was outstanding from start to finish! Nicola’s warm, friendly approach (along with her ability to learn the children’s names before first break) meant that she was able to build relationships with the children quickly and encourage them to think deeper, share their ideas openly and truly get the most out of the sessions.

“Nicola is a true expert in the subject and used this to captivate the children with historical facts and accounts from survivors she knew from memory. Her use of artefacts, pictures and video accounts was pitched perfectly with the Year 6 History curriculum, developing the children’s ability to analyse and interpret sources critically.

“The quality of resources used is fantastic and it is clear that care and attention to detail has gone into everything shared with the children.

“I would, and already have recommended this workshop online and to colleagues in other schools. This workshop was one of the best I have ever taken part in! …I cannot think of any reason a school would not invite you in to work with their children.”

Your pupils will follow the story of a 10 year old Jewish boy from Nazi Germany in 1938 to safety in England via the Kindertransport.

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.
