Today the Sunshines learnt about the significant individual Rosa Parks. They started by listening to an adapted version of Tusk, Tusk by David McKee and spoke about how it wasn't nice to treat people differently just because they were different. The Sunshines even said that the elephants in Tusk Tusk wouldn't like Elmer as he was a brightly coloured patchwork elephant! After the story they discussed how they have previously learnt about how everybody is different and that this is what makes us special and unique and just because we are all different doesn't mean we can't all be friends. They thought about how they are different those they were sat next to - they could identify that some people wore glasses and some don't, some have blue eyes and some don't and that some people had long hair and other had short hair. They said that this is all okay.
Sunshines learnt that Rosa Parks lived in the past and that when she was alive people were treated differently for being different - just like the elephants. They learnt that when Rosa Parks was alive people were kept apart from each other because of their difference - they discussed how they would feel if they were kept apart from their friends for being different. They heard how Rosa Parks fought for equality and said this meant she fought for everyone to be treated the same despite their differences.
They ended with the following positive thoughts using MTYT:
