The lesson presentation titled "Are all lies bad?" is designed for Primary KS1 students and explores the complex nature of honesty and lying. The interactive session begins with a 'Raise your hand if...' activity where children reflect on their own experiences with fibbing, such as denying responsibility for an action or claiming to have completed homework that was actually undone. This introduction sets the stage for a deeper discussion on the morality of lying and whether all lies are inherently negative. The lesson encourages children to consider various scenarios, such as telling a 'white lie' to avoid hurting someone's feelings or to be polite, and to distinguish between different types of lies.

Throughout the week, the learning journey involves activities such as identifying 'white lies', voting on the acceptability of certain lies, and discussing the concept of honesty being the best policy. Students are prompted to think critically about situations where they might be tempted to lie and to explore the consequences of lying through role-play and storytelling. For example, they consider scenarios like reacting to a friend's unflattering haircut or responding to a gift they don't like. The lesson aims to help children understand the impact of lies and to develop their own perspectives on when, if ever, lying might be justified. The session concludes with a creative exercise where students partner up to craft a story about a character who lies, mapping out the consequences of that lie through a storyboard.
