Home’ celebrates the rich culture of the Black Country
and invites school children to engage their imaginations
and their schoolwork with the diversity of their own communities.
Home’ addresses multiple disciplinary areas of the
national curriculum. Most notably, ‘Home’ introduces
key themes in the Key Stage Two PSHE and citizenship curricula
guidelines, particularly in developing personal relationships
and in respecting diversity among people. In-class activities
exploring these themes were developed by the Gazebo team
to promote confidence and self-awareness among students.
‘Home’ also addresses areas of the history,
geography and English curricula. Each character introduces
elements of his or her country of origin and shares his
or her personal experiences with important historical events.
