KS2 Anti-Racism with Man Utd – Show Racism the Red Card

Pupils learn about the charity Show Racism the Red Card Show Racism the Red Card is a charity which joins forces with professional footballers to combat racism. A group of Year 6 pupils from St John’s Primary School in Manchester attend the launch of SRtRC’s latest film, ‘Racism and the Beautiful Game’ at Man Utd’s Old Trafford ground. After watching the film, the pupils have the chance to put their questions to a panel of footballers, including Rio Ferdinand and Andy Cole, and hear the players’ own stories of racism they’ve experienced, both on and off the pitch. Back at school, the class do an activity from SRtRC’s education pack to help them understand how it feels to be a victim of racism. Then they set to work on group entries for SRtRC’s annual schools competition, which asks for creative work such as music, drama, writing and art with an anti-racist message behind it. The groups discuss the meaning of racism and use the answers they come up with to put together some drama and rap entries.
