KS2 The Holocaust? 'teach up to the gates and not within'

Discussion in 'Primary' started by cromwell44, May 8, 2011.

  1. A child in my class recently visited Poland and visted Auschwitz-.
    He complied a detailed and thougthful Ppt on the subject and we showed this to the class when he returned.
    The children were both moved and unbelieving (some thought the Ppt was part of a comedy)
    but they were also very curious to discover more once they appreciated that Auschwitz was a 'real' place.
    I'm considering studying this subject in more depth with the class as I beleive it is important to follow when the children show a clear interest in investigating a topic.
    However it is obvioulsy an extermely sensetive and perhaps traumatic subject. i'm aware of the reccomendation to 'teach up to the gates and not within'.
    Has anyone any advice or experience of 'going inside the gates at primary level'?
