- To recognise that stereotypes are present in everyday life
Pupils should be taught:
- What a stereotype is, and how stereotypes can be unfair, negative or destructive.
Pupils needing extra support: Select pictures which have very obvious stereotypes for children to look at in the main event activity.
Pupils working at greater depth: Instead of creating an advert children could write a letter to a toy manufacturer or shop to suggest how they could avoid stereotypes in their products.
