You will need the PowerPoint slides that accompany this assembly ( Celebrating Difference) and the means to display them. At the same time, other children might need to learn how to communicate with a classmate who communicates in a different way or finds it hard to communicate. There are a few different events throughout the year where you can explore the idea of embracing our differences with your class. LGBT History Month takes place annually during February, and is a month-long celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, as well as the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements. Chrysanthemum has always loved her name - until the first day of school. Victoria and Jo tease her, saying that she’s named after a flower and then they start smelling her. Will Chrysanthemum learn to bloom and be proud of her name again? This story will resonate with children who are told they have an ‘unusual’ name and teach other children to respect each other’s names, even if they sound different to you.

Tip Tip! Before your children begin writing, it can be helpful to read different poems first to get lots of ideas. They can also plan their poem out on a Mind Map before putting their pencil to paper. Poetry for younger children As responsible citizens in the community, we have to remember to treat everyone the same, and to celebrate our differences as well as our similarities. The allium is from the onion family and grows from a bulb. It has beautiful flower heads on the end of very long stems. Have you seen any onions in the supermarket that are as attractive as this? Now think about your class and each member of it. It is the combination of children with all their differences that makes it such a rich place. Discussion cards are a great way of talking about a topic such as diversity. Each card contains a story with different characters. Children can read the story then answer the questions underneath. These questions encourage children to reflect on what similarities and differences the characters have and what positive qualities each person has.Pete the cat hears there’s a new guy in town, and he’s excited to meet him. When Pete meets Gus, though, he realises that they’re pretty different from each other - and that’s what makes Gus so cool! But Gus doesn’t see things the same way and starts to doubt himself. It’s up to Pete to show Gus that everyone is good at something and that Gus is special in his very own way. Modeling- Children look to their parents and caregivers as a model for how to act in unfamiliar situations. They will mirror the values and attitudes of those they love and look up to. Parents who model and display tolerance in their everyday actions and words, teach their children to appreciate differences in others too. Challenge yourself to examine the way you treat and speak to others in a variety of situations. Children hear everything, even when we think they are not listening. Do your words reflect tolerance?

PowerPoints like this celebrating differences KS2 resource are also fantastic for online learning environments. It can be very difficult to adapt a lesson plan for use in a remote learning space, so using a PowerPoint can make the process significantly easier, all you have to do is load up the presentation, share your screen with your class, and you're ready to go! To explore the value of tolerance and the importance of accepting and celebrating diversity. Preparation and materials Have the students record the answers with different-colored markers in a creative way on the paper plate. Then, share the differences among the children. As each slide appears, read the list to the children and ask them what the list has in common – why have these items been grouped together?Monitor Media- The media can be a powerful source of perpetuating untrue and unfair stereotypes. Be thoughtful about the television shows, books, and games you allow your child to view or play. Here are a few book suggestions to read with your children that help teach compassion and celebrate differences: You could also use these We Are All Different Inspirational Posters to decorate your classroom with, too. You can also find more ways to celebrate diversity over on our 5 Diversity Games and Activities blog. How can we combat discrimination? Along with colleague Vivian Troen, director of the education consultancy The Power of Teacher Learning, Boles developed a series of activities centered on the theme “Differences are GREAT!” Teachers can use these activities to help initiate conversations at the start of the school year about being caring, open-minded, and conscious of diversity. “Encouraging young children to focus on differences can help them understand and respect the strengths and weaknesses in others and in themselves,” says Boles. In this resource, you’ll find a beautifully illustrated PowerPoint with each slide depicting different areas where people can be different. The slides cover different types of hair, different coloured skin, the different people we might live with, and the different things we all like or dislike. There are lots of ways you can introduce your children to diversity, helping them to understand what it means:

CHILD 5: In school, we’ve experienced lots of different cultures and see how people live in the different parts of the world. Karri the Koala sees a flyer about a Mummy and Daughter disco in town, and she really wants to go, but she has two dads in her family and no mum. Feeling left out, Karri decides to talk to her friends. As it turns out, her friends want to go with some of their other family members too, like their sister or gran. Karri takes things into her own hands and asks the mayor to make sure that everyone feels part of the party. CHILD 5: We can also have different families. Some people can two mums, two dads, just one mum, just one dad, step families and even carers, and many more. This wonderful celebrating differences PowerPoint is ideal to use with Foundation Phase learning on a 'myself and others' theme. It's great for helping learners realise that differences are what make us all unique and special. Differences should be celebrated, and helping children to realise this from a young age is important.You’ll never meet a person who is exactly the same as you in every way. People have different appearances and identities but we also have so many similarities, which make us all equal! And if you ask me, that’s definitely something to celebrate! There are a number of different ways that this celebrating differences KS2 resource can aid learning. Firstly, as a PowerPoint, this resource is perfect for use when teaching large classes. On occasions, it can be difficult to keep the attention of a whole class, especially a big one. That is why PowerPoints are so good in these instances, because they can be displayed on any large screen you have, and they can then be easily seen and more easily understood as a result! Give the names of six children in the school who are different in size, age, sex, ethnicity, ability and so on. Ask these children to come to the front of the assembly. When thinking about getting younger children excited about writing their own poetry, acrostic style poems are great to use. The reason for this is that they allow children to get a clear understanding of a theme or topic creatively. You can help your children to learn about these types of poems with our useful PowerPoint and YouTube Video .
