Stand against racism and wear red
On Friday 20th October, the London Eye lit up red to celebrate ‘Wear Red Day’ in partnership with Show Racism the Red Card to advocate for anti-racism.
To honour the occasion and educate students on the purpose of ‘Wear Red Day’ and their shared responsibility to stand up against racism, we’ve created a brand-new free assembly ready for you to use in school.
The assembly is designed for KS2/KS5 students, with bespoke speaker notes, helping to:
- Increase awareness of the ‘Wear Red Day’ mission
- Educate students on the history behind the charity, Show Racism the Red Card
- Encourage reflection on themes like diversity, equality, identity and community
- Support classroom learning in PSHE, history, citizenship and more
And if you’re looking to take student learning even further, try our curriculum-linked ‘Wear Red Day’ activities: they’re fun, free and ready to use in class or on a trip to the London Eye.
Students can learn about the history of anti-racism, explore the story of Show Racism the Red Card, write an engaging ‘Wear Red Day’ news report and much more!
