An activity which explores how a student, who is new to a school, perhaps having moved from a different part of the country, or even within the same city, feels about their experience. It is also helpful for students to consider the feelings of those new to an environment, and ways they can welcome them.

Taken from the fantastic book ‘We Are All Born Free‘ by Amnesty, Freedom Park shows Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “We all have the right to life”. In class, children can explore the different messages they can see within the image and during class visit days, children can work collaboratively to create their very own version of Freedom Park!

This steady, kind story helps key stage 2 children move forward in their empathy and understanding of asylum seekers and is a perfect way to gently open discussion around the refugee crisis. We often use the beginning and end of this book to start a conversation in the classroom and we have known teachers use it with Key Stage 3 pupils.

The starfish story can be a helpful way to help learners understand active citizenship and encourage them that it is worth taking action to make a difference.
