Footprints of Faith

Walks for schools through culture, history and belief in Cambridge

Human Rights KS2

There are 6 stopping places on the full walk. Each stop is designed to look at the contribution made by an individual, or small group of people, to a particular human rights issue. The children will see something related to the individual, hear their story, and take part in an activity designed to deepen their understanding of the story/issue and/or relate it to our world today, with an emphasis on the importance of speaking out against injustice. Teachers can download a pdf of the KS2 Human Rights walk or click on the links below.
