A collection of poems around the themes of equality, diversity and cohesion by Year 6 pupils across the borough of Sefton in Merseyside.
'Different But The Same' is a collection of poems around the themes of equality, diversity and cohesion by Year 6 pupils across the borough of Sefton in Merseyside.
The book was a result of workshops carried out by Sefton's Complementary Education Service that aimed to carry out 'myth busting' exercises around the negative stereotyping associated with certain communities and groups, as well as developing a broader understanding of equality, diversity and cohesion. Not only did pupils explore the aforementioned themes, they also highlighted issues around areas such as social exclusions, bullying and the negative impact on mental well being of the children.
Hand hit, mouth split, knuckle punch, foot crunch
Eye swells, cant see, please don't hurt me.
Different colour, different hair
Why oh why is it strange what I wear?
I am who I am and I am me
I'm not scared so let me be.
