Refugee Day 2023

Children in all year groups learnt about refugees, asylum seekers and the meaning of safety and home. 

Each class came up with ideas for a If you join our school poem. This is the final school poem of welcome:

If you join our school, we will show you around and look after you

If you feel alone, our school is your home

If you need a friend, we will give you hundreds

If you need a helping hand, we will reach out to you

If you’re worried, we will offer lots of courage

If you are blue, we will brighten your mood

If you do not know where to go, we will draw a path for you

If you join our class, we’re sure you’ll have a blast!


Nursery looked at finding the right house whilst Reception created friendship bracelets for each other...
