British Red Cross Workshop
Today we had a visitor from the British Red Cross who was delivering a workshop about Refugees and Asylum Seekers. Firstly the class looked at some definitions so they had a clear understanding of the difference between a refugee and an asylum seeker then went on to finding out how many refugees we allow into Britain compared to other countries and tackle any myths there are around this subject. We then played a game called 'stay or leave' and talked about some of the decisions that some people have. The children learnt a lot in these sessions and it linked fantastically with our, 'Does history repeat its self?' topic.
