This week, Year 5 have started to study the life of Anne Frank, as part of this they have discussed what life was like for Jews and other minorities in Nazi-occupied Europe.

This has given us an opportunity to explore the dangers of extremism, divided communities and racism through the applied lesson of the Holocaust. Year 5 have been extremely mature and respectful whilst discussing these issues and have been able to  understand the potential consequences of the marginalisation of those perceived to be different.

They will continue this work over the next couple of weeks within English, History and PSHE,
