PSHE KS2 / KS3: Navid's journey from Iran

This short animation explores the story of a young boy called Navid and his journey from Iran to the UK.

Navid describes why he had to leave his country, the long and dangerous journey to the UK, and how he adjusted to his new life in unfamiliar surroundings.

Teacher Notes

This short film could be used as an illustration of why some people have to flee their country, and therefore, help raise questions about persecution and war.

It could also be used to start a discussion around what it’s like for children adapting to life in the UK, identity and the effects of alienation and displacement they may experience.

In addition, in an English lesson this film could generate discussion for the different genres of writing, providing an example of narrative and describing personal experiences.

Curriculum Notes

This short film will be relevant for teaching PSHE, citizenship and PDE at KS2 and KS3 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 3rd and 4th Level in Scotland.
