Holocaust Memorial Day

This morning we thought about the Holocaust; what happened, when and to whom. We studied some of the laws imposed upon Jewish people at that time. Pupils noticed that as time went on the laws became more extreme.
Some of the laws that made them feel sad was that ‘Jewish people were not allowed to marry non-Jewish people’ and ‘Jewish children were not allowed to go to school with non-Jewish children’.
One of the laws that made them feel scared was that ‘Jewish people must be home from 8pm in the winter and 9pm in the summer’.

George’s Marvellous Medicine

For the last 2 weeks we have been reading George’s Marvellous Medicine; we have studied the language used and the ideas within it. The pupils are now writing the story in their own words….they could take a while to mark…!

Fire Safety - Diogelwch Tân

Today we were visited by our Fire Education Officer. She explained the importance of smoke detectors in the home, which should be tested weekly. She explained what not to do in our home with the aim of preventing fires from starting. She also explained what to do if there is a fire: Get out, Stay out, Ring 999.

The Knighton and District Refugee Support Group

This afternoon Larry, Nicola and Rev Ken (who are members of this group) visited us to talk to us about what they do. They explained that there are about 40 members who support refugees, possibly host refugees, support hosts and fundraise to facilitate this; they raise about £5000 a year.
Our pupils asked some really insightful questions and were really intrigued by what our visitors had to say. They were particularly taken by the flashbacks that refugees experience when completing very simple activities (such as going swimming) and the idea that refugees think it’s unsafe to drink water from a tap without treating or boiling it first.
