6th March 2020
During reading week from Monday 2nd March through to Friday 6th March, year 6 were involved in some very exciting activities all based around the book Boy 87.
We had to imagine that we had a refugee in our classrooms and thought about how to make them feel welcome. So we produced welcome posters that were in lots of different languages. Then we had to imagine that we ourselves were a refugee or that we knew a refugee and write an emotive poem about what it was like. We also made paper boats and added facts and statistics about refugees to them to raise awareness.
On Tuesday we had a visitor from Aid Box Community Charity in Bristol come and speak to us about their work with refugees and we managed to collect lots of food for the charity throughout the week to support their work.
We also created a comic strip to describe the story of Boy87 in words and pictures, and even got to make our own top trump cards.
Finally, we presented all our completed pieces and created videos of what we had done, and parents and pupils got to see it all ready for our competition entry! We had great fun and learnt lots about refugees!
