In Britain Today: Community, Diversity and Tolerance
Creative PSHE Workshops
Kala Sangam are excited to be launching our new creative PSHE workshops “In Britain Today”. In these workshops participants will get the chance to investigate ideas of community and identity through exciting and engaging creative movement and storytelling tasks. Our facilitators will lead pupils through these themes, and enable them to actively explore their own identity, that of others and to develop their understanding of modern Britain through our specially designed creative exercises. This workshop will help to build personal skills such as confidence, self-expression and communication, as well as motive children and young people to think about how they can become more responsible members of their school and wider communities. Children and young people will explore key concepts from the PSHE curriculum like never before!
Through creative movement and storytelling activities participants will explore ideas of community, what it means to have ‘values’ and how our values may affect or influence our behaviour. Creative facilitators will lead pupils through these themes, and enable pupils to actively explore their own identity and that of others and to develop their understanding of modern Britain through specially designed exercises on community, tolerance, and ethnic and religious diversity in the UK. Participants will develop their own ‘codes’ of behaviour in accordance to what is important to them.

KS3 & KS4
For KS3 and KS4 students the workshop will look more in-depth into the themes, ideas and exercises described above. Participants will also investigate the UK laws in place to protect communities and promote tolerance, such as Universal Declaration on Human Rights and UN Convention on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and more, and relate them to modern British life.

After either workshop (KS2 or KS3/4) teachers will receive a post-workshop resource pack which includes further discussion points, activities and exercises to support your teaching of PSHE and enable you to continue practically investigating these ideas with your students
The exercises in this workshop will support the promotion of social, moral, spiritual and cultural (SMSC) development in your school.
Key SMSC links are:
- respect and tolerance for others;
- understanding that the definition of ‘community’ can be broad and all-encompassing, and individuals can belong to many different communities at once;
- investigating their own values and understanding the viewpoints of others;
- exploring cultural influences that have shaped their own heritage and those of others; and
- gaining an understanding the range of different cultures within your school/class, the Bradford district and across the UK.
Our work also promotes understanding the British Values of individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance and the rules of law.
The costs of KS Education packages are flexible and we can work within your budget.
