British Values

Explore ‘British Values’ at the museum, using elements of our fascinating collection for inspiration and the stories of individuals and their actions to understand this complex curriculum topic.

Students will:

• Discuss democratic values
• Investigate the importance of the rule of law
• Appreciate mutual respect for all faiths and none
• Learn about the defence of individual liberties

This inspirational workshop focuses on key characters from the history of the Green Howards regiment who, through their bravery and sacrifice, have helped to shape the nation in which we live. Using our unique museum collection, students can examine the complex issue of British Values by exploring themes such as service, loyalty and diversity. Stories about ordinary people undertaking extraordinary actions, obeying rules and questioning authority are used to promote discussion and debate.

Scenario-based learning promotes an understanding of British Values and provides pupils with the opportunity to learn how to defend a reasoned point of view.

Duration – half day session

• an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through informed discussion and reasoning, and by being active in the democratic process
• an appreciation that living with rules protects individuals for their wellbeing and safety
• an acceptance that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour.
