What Makes Us Unique?

Friday 13th October | 4 comments

In PSHE this week, we have been learning about how the media can manipulate photos and the impact that this can have on people. We noticed that the media has a tendency to make people look slimmer, more muscular or more beautiful – even when there is nothing wrong with how the person really looks!  The children also had a think about how this would make the average person feel, realising that people often felt like they needed to look like these ‘ideals’ in order to be accepted.

Despite this, the children pointed out that you don’t need to look like everyone else to feel good about yourself and that actually, being you was much more important. They then had a think about the things that they were most proud of about themselves and the characteristics and traits that made each of them special, unique and amazing. We thought we’d share them with you!
