Prejudice and Discrimination
During our immersion activities we learnt the difference between prejudice and discrimination and explored how different groups experience discrimination through watching Dr Seuss' Sneetches! We are excited to become experts on the key individuals involved in the slave trade and present our case studies at our 'staged' court case!
Here are the 9 key individuals who had a part to play in the transatlantic slave trade. We had to rank them in order of blame using the 'Diamond 9' sorting diagram, ranging from who we thought should carry substantial blame at the top, through to no blame at the bottom. Over the next few weeks, we will be finding out more about them and will revisit our orginal 'Diamond 9' to see if we want to make any changes.
We ended last half term with STEM week. Throughout the week, we took part in maths puzzle workshops, used Lego to make models and had lots of parents come and talk to us about their amazing science, technology, engineering and maths jobs. In addition to this, we spent the week designing and making small scale carnival floats as part of our Brazil topic. We used prototypes to research how to strengthen and reinforce joins and made a wooden frame for the base of our float. Finally we decorated it to represent our chosen theme e.g. Amazon rainforest, Amazon river, music and dance, Rio Olympics and sport.
And here are our final products...
