Hello everyone, I have children that I am currently trying to home-school and like a lot of carers I am struggling to get through the deluge of work that is currently being sent home from school.

However, what has caused a lot of discussion in our house recently is the murder of George Floyd in America. I don’t know about anybody else, but I have struggled to explain the injustice of the situation to my children. I decided to turn to the internet (which has now become my new best friend since lockdown started) to find some resources that would help, at their level of understanding describe what racism is and how we can help to combat it.

I thought that these resources might also help other carers in the same situation, so please find below some of the websites I found useful, along with the age ranges that they would be appropriate for

Resources for parents on how to talk to children of all ages about racism:

You can also google 'ISBN 13: 9781526300539' for books to start conversations with your children

  • 'Racism and Intolerance' by Louise Spilsbury, a "Fantastic book to help children understand what’s happening in the news"
