Resource title
KS2 Anti-Racism with Man Utd - Show Racism the Red Card
In this 15 minute Teachers TV film clip, a group of Year 6 pupils from St John's Primary School, Manchester, attend the launch of Show Racism the Red Card's latest film at Manchester United's Old Trafford ground.

After watching the film, the pupils put their questions to a panel of footballers, including Rio Ferdinand and Andy Cole, and hear about their experiences of racism both on and off the pitch. The footballers give the pupils advice on how to deal with racist abuse, and back at school the pupils do an activity to help them understand what it feels like to be a victim of racism / prejudice (i.e. stand up if you have blonde hair, left handed and freckles).

Then they set to work on group entries for Show Racism the Red Card's annual school competition, which asks pupils to create work with an anti-racist message behind it. The groups discuss the meaning of racism and use their answers to put together some drama and rap song entries.

This resource can be used as a powerful tool to enter into contentious discussions with children and young people and engage them in a variety of anti-racist themed activities through artwork, creative writing, role-play, drama, dance, film and music. As footballers are role models who children and young people will listen to and learn from, incorporating the activities outlined in this film clip and in the Show Racism the Red Card education pack,, teachers can work with pupils to counter racism in a relevant and practical way.
