This Is Me

What is the purpose of this lesson?

For children to recognise a change in attitude as the members of the circus reaching breaking point and come together to throw off the oppression that they have faced for their entire lives.  The prejudice directed at the 'freaks' from members of the public is obvious throughout the video and children can use clues in the actions of the circus team to figure out how and when they become free.  Their are lots of metaphors in the lyrics that children can try to decipher.
