3D PSHE Extremism and Radicalisation

In line with the Prevent Strategy, we have produced units of work for both KS1 and KS2 to enable primary schools to teach about Extremism and Radicalisation.

Extremism and radicalisation is a difficult area to tackle with children. In fact, should we really be tackling it at all? Well, the feedback we’ve had from teachers is that many pupils are coming into school, having seen the terrorist attacks on the news, with questions. Big questions. The problem is that staff aren’t trained to deal with these issues and don’t feel equipped to explain simply enough to their pupils what is going on. Well relax, we’ve created two great resources to deal with this difficult area.

Key Stage 1 Extremism and Radicalisation UnitKS1 extremism and radicalisation

Following the success and rave reviews of our 3D PSHE KS2 Extremism and Radicalisation Unit, we have created a similar resource aimed at KS1 pupils. Suitable for using in class or as an assembly resource. 3D PSHE KS1 Extremism and Radicalisation begins by focusing on the concept of fact and opinion, moving on to the idea of right and wrong, in three fully planned and resourced sessions.

KS1 extremism  ‘The Story of Redfern Right’ provides an age-appropriate, engaging way to explain how a minority of people who have strong opinions and beliefs think they are right and everyone else is wrong. Using animation and repetitive language, pupils are easily able to access the meaning behind the story. Teachers can then link this to their own context, going into as much or as little detail about extremism, radicalisation and terrorism as they deem appropriate for their pupils.

The final part of the resource focuses on celebrating difference, with a funky, fresh, up-beat song setting the tone. ‘The Boring Song’ (ironically titled) explains why it is good to be different and that there’s nothing wrong with not being the same as other people, whether that is in how we look, what we like or what we believe. Complete with both karaoke and vocal tracks, sheet music and on-screen lyrics, you’ll be humming this tune all day!

Song Sample

The unit comes comes as a digital download or CD-ROM, with three fully-resourced session plans, innovative animation and song.

Key Stage 2 Extremism and Radicalisation UnitKS2 Extremism and Radicalisation

Our popular KS2 resource is a standalone unit, allowing schools to decide which year group to use it with. We would especially recommend its use with Upper Key Stage 2 pupils. This unit deals with this difficult topic in an effective and yet sensitive way. The unit comes as a digital download, with five fully-resourced lesson plans, innovative animation and a stimulating paperback story book.

Best Practice in West and North Yorkshire

We were delighted to hear that this unit was hailed as ‘best practice’ in a North Yorkshire  PSHE Network in Harrogate. Perhaps they heard about us from their geographical colleagues from the City of Leeds who invested in one unit for every Primary School in their area.

It’s always lovely to hear that we’re supporting schools and saving teachers time delivering outstanding, engaging and fun lessons.

Prices of Digital Downloads 

Key Stage 1 is just £17.95 (ex VAT)

Key Stage 2 is just £35 (ex VAT)

You can also buy both KS1 and KS2 Extremism and Radicalisation as a bundle for just £47.95 (ex VAT) which gives you a saving of £5.

Bubbles Quote

"Bubbles resources are incredibly simple and easy to follow. The warm-up activities are great – my children are singing ‘Radio Rock’ continually at the moment!!! I like the fact it links with other resources we have in school and that it reinforces teaching in other curricular areas. I've found it to be an invaluable, creative way to teach and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the resources to other teachers."

Marking Quote

“The Ofsted inspection reflected a huge improvement in our past performance. They were impressed with all aspects of the school and could see the curriculum work we are doing through Dimensions has made a big difference. They were particularly impressed with the marking programmes and the fact that the children were able to explain how they worked and implement next steps themselves. There is no doubt that Dimensions has had a hugely positive impact on raising standards.”

Comment from Ofsted March 2016, Waterloo Primary School, Ashton-Under-Lyne

"The school's curriculum ensures a strong focus on developing the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils' knowledge and skills in other subjects, such as science, geography, history and art are developed through a range of cross-curricular topics and themes, which are planned to capture and motivate their interest and develop a love of learning. Pupils' positive views about their work reflect that this is successful."
