A lesson starter and starting point for KS2 English pupils on opinion-writing.
Pupils talk and dramatise what they believe to be unfair in their lives at home and school. They then move on to more serious, worldwide issues.
The collection of children's comments are grouped under three headings: family stuff, school stuff and serious stuff.
Preferential treatment for siblings, tests and favouritism at school and the inequality of wealth and cruelty to animals are just some of the topics covered.
Teachers could use these thoughts and discussions to differentiate the degrees of unfairness between personal anecdotes and world events with pupils.
