Year 6 visit to Beth Shalom

We were also able to listen to two Holocaust survivors who detailed their own journeys and how they found life during WW2. We also considered how there are some children in the world today who are still being treated unjustly or are in danger from war and conflict.

Y6 were very moved by their trip and understood the importance of what they had learnt and how it might affect their choices in the future to ensure a better life for everyone.

James Griffiths (Director of Learning) at the National Holocaust Centre, said:

 

‘The learning programmes at The National Holocaust Centre encourage students to focus on the importance of the ‘choices’ individuals make. They also teach students about the consequences of not challenging discrimination and propaganda and failing to value diversity.’

 

A superb learning experience and Y6 were exemplary in their mature attitudes, questions and responses. We look forward to using this trip in our future WW2 learning to delve deeper into life during the war
