Looking around the room at each other, using books and photographs are visual prompts that help children comprehend that differences whatever they may be does not change who they are inside.
We are all humans. We discuss why some people are different physically and how some people’s differences may not be physical with our common ground being that we all have a heart and feelings. People can look different, people can sound different yet we are all people.
We will be chatting about thinking before we speak and counting in our heads up to five and taking a few moments to think about what we might want to say.
We will be chatting about what it might be like to be the other child or person. Empathy is the key to acceptance. Children who feel good and accept who they are themselves are more respectful towards others and are also less likely to bully.
