Equality – does it truly exist?

Concept of Equality

The Autumn Term and the children’s journey in year five begins with a project learning about life in Brazil. They compare regions and biomes of Brazil to one another and then to the UK, considering equality and whether children in these different countries have their needs met in the same way.  This focuses specifically on our RRR and Safe star, examining and evaluating children’s rights to a healthy lifestyle and to be safe.

The aim of this project is for children to debate and form their own opinion to answer the question ‘Equality – does it truly exist?’  They consider people’s expected standards of living and whether this is a want or a need, showing empathy for people less fortunate than themselves and aspiring to be the best they can be.
