Early Years Myths of Immigration Booklet

This booklet aims to provide nursery and early primary teachers with some ideas for discussing the myths of immigration within their schools and nurseries; myths such as "we have loads of immigrants in the UK” and "people come to the UK because we’re a soft touch and give out loads of benefits; people just want free healthcare and free houses.” 

We know that teachers are already very busy and that the curriculum is crowded. However, there are many different ways to engage with this issue.

Whether you have time to organise one assembly or learning focus or to plan a few activities or a themed day, there is something you can do to help children and families understand this issue better.
