Ascription

Books

Available to loan

EMTAS has worked closely with Swanmore C of E Primary School to identify Traveller based texts at KS1and KS2 that can be incorporated into Guided Reading Sessions. A set of discussion questions has been produced to accompany each of the texts in order to support a member of staff using the books to address any cultural issues that may arise.

EMTAS has compiled a book list Microsoft Word 71kB of these titles. Schools can borrow the books which have been turned into packs to support group reading activities. Each pack includes a set of 6 books and discussion questions. Some packs include additional activities that can be used to supplement group reading. A synopsis of each book is given in the downloadable list and an indication of the Year Group for which the text may be suitable.

Secondary drama scheme of work which addresses prejudice towards members of the Traveller community through drama.

Monitoring reports

These two reports: were compiled following a series of monitoring visits to secondary schools to identify any barriers to achievement as well as identify factors which contributed to the positive achievement of the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) students in Hampshire schools. It should be noted that although numbers of GRT in both reports are small there were some commonalities among schools in their support and provision. Good practice to improve educational experience and outcomes for Traveller students feature in both reports.
