We used our learning about human systems to create boards games. This was a lot of fun!
The pupils agreed they would like to help refugees to feel welcome, loved and supported and that something as simple as a smile would help to do that.
’If I could do anything to help I would …’
Suggestions included: making donations of food, toys, money and shelter, offering a place to stay, providing support to locate missing friends and family, work to promote peace and end war.
Today we enjoyed learning the song, ‘Shwmae, Shwmae’, colouring Welsh pictures and wearing our Welsh colours for ‘Shwmae Shwmae Day.’
We listened to the story of a young boy who had to leave his home.
Ydych chi’n gallu dyfalu beth oedd y geiriau pwysig? Can you guess what the important words were in the story? We had to create an image for them.
Many thanks to Katie for working with us to teach us ‘Jacob’s Memory Garden’ song.
We have created a meadow as a class. We drew minibeasts that would live in the meadow and thought about the different habitats within the meadow. We are a team of conservationists, that have been asked to find out about and take care of the minibeasts in the meadow.
Pc Viv came in to talk to us about keeping safe and good friendships. This was very interesting and we learnt a lot.
We are working with Andrew, from Pentabus, on a project which has been part-funded by the Knighton and District Refugee Support Group.
We started by considering how all of our experiences are different.
After our training with Tim Taylor we tried a new way to move into our mantle. We studied an image then tried to imagine the thoughts of the people in it. Our pupils showed such empathy and understanding.
”We need to move up to make room for more people”
”Where are the rest of my family?”
”What if we drown?”
