This pack by Amnesty Interntaional focuses on asylum, approaching the issue from global and UK perspectives. It encourages students to draw parallels with their own lives. Many of the activities build on an empathetic understanding of situations to develop knowledge and skills for approaching the subject of asylum. Pupils are encouraged to expand their understanding beyond themselves: to think globally and to think about human rights.
The pack is designed to approach the issue of asylum in a way that is accessible, and appropriate to primary school children. The materials and activities can be used in stand-alone lessons or in projects to encourage students to make connections between different areas of learnings.
