Year 6 have been studying all things related to ‘Refugee Week’. They approached this subject in such a mature manner and it was amazing to hear their thoughts and feelings on the topic. They were also able to well and truly put themselves in the shoes of a 10 year old refugee, referring to resources such as a reading of the Poem ‘What do you know about patience?’ (find it here https://vimeo.com/337332583).
See attached photos for their extremely emotive and powerful poems! Tears were bought to a few teachers eyes….
See here for two performances of the poem also: IMG_0515 IMG_0516
