UKS2: HMD

27th January 2016
Pupils in years 5 and 6 have been learning about the Holocaust this week with it being Holocaust Memorial Day today. The children have engaged with the topic in a mature and thoughtful manner. Their teachers have been impressed with their contributions to class discussions. We have discussed what is meant by discrimination, racism and hatred. Additionally, we discussed what is meant by 'Don't Stand By.'
