The British Red Cross visit Year 6

Year 6 were visited by The British Red Cross to take part in some workshops with the charity. The basis of the learning was centred around refugees and immigration and looked at the different reasons for people moving countries globally. We discussed our position as a country and the responsibilities we have in terms of supporting people less fortunate than ourselves. Different activities allowed the children to delve more deeply into the meaning of terminology such as 'economic migrants' and proved really useful in terms of helping to overturn some misconceptions about why people claim refugee status. All-in-all, given the political events in our country over this past year, it was a very useful exercise in helping the Year 6s to understand some of the different terminology that they have been hearing on the news or in adult conversation. We are very grateful to the Red Cross for giving up their time to come and speak to our children.
