Reception: Zero Discrimination Day

To celebrate Zero Discrimination Day, the school came together to challenge discrimination in its many different forms and celebrate the diverse country that we live in. The Equali-team delivered an assembly that informed us all about different people and different ways of life. During the day, children throughout the school took part in activities that celebrated difference and challenged stereotypes.

In Reception, we had a visit from Julian Peedle-Calloo and Adele his sign language interpreter, who taught us a number of different signs used by the deaf community to communicate. Two of the children's favourite signs were 'rainbow' and 'gold'!

 We then spoke about different families and shared stories from our our lives with our partners. We discussed how our families and ways of life were different to our friends, and decided that this was actually something to celebrate! 

"It would be so boring if we were all the same!"


We read The Family Book by Todd Parr as a stimulus for discussion. During choosing time, we wrote our own Family Books, focusing on celebrating differences between one another's families and experiences.
