Refugee Week 2018

In our assemblies today we talked about Refugee Week, a time each year when people think about the challenging lives of children who have to flee their homes and the difficult journeys they go on to find somewhere safe to live.

In the Key Stage 2 assembly we watched these two videos.  One is a stop motion animation made at a primary school in Australia, telling the story of one of their pupils. The other is the story of a primary school in England that takes great pride in making new families feel safe and welcome.

We want everyone to feel happy and safe at Lawford Mead.  In both assemblies we discussed what we can do to make all new people feel welcome.  Can you leave a comment below with your own suggestions?
