What is the refugee crisis? Year 5 exhibition

18/04/2016

1 Capture Capture2 Capture3 Capture4 Capture6 Capture56At the beginning of January 2016, Year 5 began to learn about Refugees.  Since then, we’ve been looking at refugees and their struggle to come to a safe place, like the UK. We have been looking at the world map and locating where most people have been fleeing from and what the dangers are whilst travelling from country to country. Lots of places have put up borders and are ignoring the desperate cries of help from these refugees.

This is a very heartfelt project and requires lots of empathy to understand it. The only things these people want is a safe place which many of us take for granted. Among these refugees are young children. One Thursday, the year 5’s met Naeem Brisco. Before he came to see us, we researched his previous work with refugees. We are working with Naeem to create aid boxes for refugees. We will be including hats, scarves, gloves, toiletries, soft toys and activities.

One of our final outcomes for this project is to create books for child refugees to welcome them to Leicester. Every class is working on a book; we are in small groups and have different focuses for the pages inside the book. We are looking forward to completing it.
