School Council Work
Supporting refugee children in school
We recently led a school assembly where we shared our intentions to support refugee families in the local area. We talked about how refugee children and young people have experienced many difficulties on their journey to school in England and that they are looking for a safe place to live.
We know that we should show them love and kindness and offer them a warm welcome so we have decided to work in our classes on a small project that will support them.
KS2 children are creating an information pack about the local area with information about where to shop, where to worship, where to get help, holiday activities, clubs, bus timetables and maps of the area with easily understandable keys.
KS1 children are also making things to welcome younger children to the UK.
On the 8th of March, school councillors from KS1 helped to bury a time capsule in the foundations of the new school build. School children had contributed to the time capsule by placing things of interest including: information about our school, images and their own writing so that maybe one day, years from now, other people might unearth it and be amazed at what life was like in the year 2018!
