Following the publication of New in Our Nation, a resource for older students, this book has been written to provide a similar resource for younger pupils. It offers the adult who supports these pupils a sensitive, honest and practical programme. This is a good balance between affective and skills based activities and, whilst recognising the uncertainty they face, the six sessions all provide a positive focus for the children and their families.
The programme includes:
"who we are
"important things to me
"similarities and differences
"what is it like to be different?
"my shield of strength.
The resource includes copiable material for participants personal files, and posters for display.
