What is it like to be in the minority at school?
Children talk about being in a religious minority at their primary school in Belfast. Every community has its own customs and culture. These pupils from minority groups explain their way of life and religion to their fellow school friends and teachers.
Make a 'share and compare' display for your classroom. Encourage children from different cultures or religions to share information about their lifestyles, food, festivals, home and language etc. Compare these aspects of life to the experience of the majority of children in the class. Working in groups, allocate themes or topics and ask the children to record these either in written form or pictorially (or with photographs) under the two headings. (Under share, there might be explanations of festivals eg Diwali, and under compare, Christmas could be explained.)
