BLACK LIVES MATTER

 

 

POSTER BY ROCHARNE

INFORMATION FOR CHILDREN

Have you heard about the movement called 'Black Lives Matter'? Would you like to learn more about it? Newsround have lots of clips about Black Lives Matter and they have interviewed lots of children asking their thoughts about racism.

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

We have found this very useful document that has been compiled by an organisation called 'Yoopies UK'. The document helps you as a parent to discuss the issues around the Black Lives Matter movement with your child. There are lots of resources, activities and tips for families to empower children of all ages to work towards racial equality. We hope that it helps you answer questions, instigate conversations and help teach your child about tolerance, respect and how to deal with tackling injustice. We have also uploaded a resource for your children to access picture books and stories with links to Youtube which you might like to share with your child (see 'PUPIL ZONE').
