Careless Talk (KS2)

From The Play House

Addresses requirements of the Key Stage 2 Curriculum:

· Speaking and listening.

· Moral development.

· Tolerance, Respect for law, democracy, liberty.

Careless Talk is thought provoking KS2 workshop which explores how a young person could be groomed to take part in extremist action.

The piece is set in the fictional town of Brodingham and tells the story of Scarlett, a young member of a minority community, The Circle, who are being persecuted by another group. The children are guided through a process where they find positive and peaceful solutions for the characters in this piece which promotes social responsibility, tolerance, and respect.

Outcomes: Children will:

· Challenge extremist perspectives and consider alternatives to violence as a way of resolving problems.

· Reflect on the role of the media, social media, gossip and rumour in contributing to perceptions and attitudes so that they understand that there are multiple points of view.

· Discuss the impact and application of the 5 fundamental British Values.

“A superb piece of drama that told a poignant message relevant to today’s world. Fantastic, meaningful discussion on the five British values that we want our children to respect, for themselves and for society as a whole.”
