Age Group - KS1

Why this Workshop?

In this workshop the children start to learn about why we all look different and why it is great that we are all different shapes and colours! The aim of the session is to help them understand at such a young age why not liking each other because of what we look like, or our abilities, is just wrong! This workshop is designed for Y1&Y2 and is an hour long set of games to help them become the best people they can be.

They will learn…

  • Why we have different coloured skin 

  • About their great great great great great great cavemen ancestors

  • The blind fold game in which they learn about facial features and how we have control over our appearances e.g. though a haircut!

  • The paper airplane challenge where we see how they work as teams

  • How to be inclusive in school and the classroom

  • How working together creates a better outcome and keeps everyone happy!

  • To make each other out of Play Doh so they can draw paraellels that even though we are all different shapes and colours we are all made of the same stuff!

  • That children change the world (we really believe this one!!!)
