The SL Identity Pack

A structured series of lesson plans drawing together the best practice, developed at SL, for preparing a KS2 class to meet.

The purpose of The SL Identity Pack is to develop discussion on the concepts of identity, diversity, uniqueness and belonging by exploring SL’s four key questions – Who am I?  Who are we? Where do we live? and How do we all live together?   These activities are not designed for linking days, however many are ideal for use in exchange of identity work.
