This programme provides a clear demonstration of how an engaging idea can enhance citizenship learning.
Jamie Elliott, Citizenship co-ordinator at Deincourt School in Chesterfield (rated as excellent in the subject by Ofsted), introduces role play to Year 7 students.
The group is given the scenario of being stranded on a desert island. They are encouraged to focus on skills including ranking priorities, selecting a leader and establishing rules.
The activity is designed to teach pupils the skills needed to be a positive member of a community, and to help them understand the importance of effective decision making.
