All Different, All Equal

Join Tabz (David Taberner), Hettie and Emily as they bring us another video assembly / collective worship on the theme of “All Different, All Equal” in the midst of a global conversation around racial equality.

Safe Space is a project of Southport & Area Schools Worker Trust, creating a safe space to explore the big issues of life and faith in local schools.

Learning OBJECTIVES and curricular links:

  • To widen understanding of the Christian faith and Biblical parables.
  • To implement widened understanding through the way we look out for those who aren’t treated fairly.
  • To see an impact in how our schools and communities become places where our British Value of Mutual Respect is evidenced in our actions towards one another.

Session plan:

Intro: Tabz welcomes Hettie and Emily who introduce the session.

Game: Bucket Ball | Hettie challenges Tabz and Emily to see who is the first to throw 2 balls into a bucket. The game can be paused so that children can join in too (2 balls per player and a bucket, box or clean bin required)

Story: ‘Every Last Lamb’ from Bob Hartman’s Rhyming Bible, based upon the story of the lost sheep from Luke 15:1-7.

Game: Jigsaw Race | Tabz and Emily race to see who can complete their jigsaw first. Though there is a twist…

Thought: Reflections on how we are all different and all equal with a focus on addressing racial injustice.

Challenge: Ways in which those who have not experienced racial injustice can listen, learn and act to help those who have and continue to, today.

SMSC Impact:

ONE. SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

This session reflects upon the well known Christian story of the lost sheep and considers the original meaning and what we can learn from it in todays society.

TWO. MORAL DEVELOPMENT

Pupils are encouraged to consider how we treat those who are different from ourselves and, with a particular focus on racial inequality and injustice, how we can stand up for others even when we haven’t experienced what they have.

THREE. SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT

The children are invited to reflect personally and discuss with others the differences that we all have and how we treat those who are different from us and stand up for others in the process.

FOUR. CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

Our country, although historically a Christian nation, is now home to many people of differing cultures, backgrounds and beliefs. In these sessions, pupils have the opportunity to celebrate and reflect respectfully on our similarities, differences and the role faith plays in the lives of people around the world.
