If I gave you a round the world ticket, where would you go?

We have been focusing on our big question “If I gave you a round the world ticket where would you go?”
This question has prompted lots of discussions about countries we have visit, places we have heard or read about and inevitably places we would like to visit!
We kicked off our new topic with the question, “Are all countries equal?” We spent an afternoon role playing the situations of different countries across the world prompting discussions around food, health and fairness.
Each group was allocated a different amount of food and water to reflect the wealth of their country. Some children were alarmed to find that they only had a few crisps and some dirty water whilst others had a lot more.
After lots of thoughtful discussion the groups represented the poorer countries expressed how they had felt sad, jealous and very helpless. The richer countries, whilst satisfied and happy with what they had did say that they felt sorry for the countries that had less and expressed a desire to help them by sharing their excess food.
