Anti-racism resources – KS1 lesson plan

Key Stage

KS1, KS2


Years 1-3

This lesson plan is designed to introduce the topic of racism to students through the book Mixed by Arree Chung (£7.99, Macmillan).

The lesson uses drama techniques and art to explore this big and multi-layered topic. It will offer opportunities for discussion and develop understanding of race and inclusivity and how it can make others feel when they are left out based on their skin colour. It will also introduce the term anti-racism, helping children to identify positive behaviour choices in response to seeing their peers being treated unfairly.

What they’ll learn

  • How to be a good friend to others who are being treated unfairly
  • What it feels like to be discriminated against based on appearance
  • Formal language such a racism and anti-racism and what those words mean in action
