My Name is not Refugee – Year 6

For our enrichment week this term, we have been doing lots of work based around the book My Name is not Refugee by Kate Milner. We have learned about the different push and pull factors that make someone want to or have to leave their country and we looked at the negative and positive emotions a person would feel when leaving their home in search for a better life. In the book, the little boy has to pack just some of his belongings into a back bac; we looked at what we would take and why. Please have a look at some of our work below.

Year 5 – ‘My Name is Not Refugee’

This week, all of our learning has been around the book ‘My Name is Not Refugee’. We have learned all about the push and pull factors that refugees face and how we would feel in their position. We packed up our things and walked around the playground to our new country. When we arrived in our new class, we listened to a story in a different language and it made us feel really anxious and alone. We also discussed values and how you can take your values anywhere in the world. Some of our favourite values were equality, world at peace and health.

It has also been World Book Day this week. Have a look at our class photo.

As you may know, this week has been anti-bullying week. Each class has focused on a specific theme around bullying and year 5 focused on cyber-bullying. We had some really good ideas about how to prevent bullying online and we were very interested to find out more about Prince William’s new cyber-bullying campaign: Stop, Speak, Support. We created our own iPhone-styled posters to promote preventing cyber-bullying.

Enrichment Week in Year 1

This week during Enrichment Week, Kingfishers have been learning about Roald Dahl and Helen Sharman. Did you know Roald Dahl use to be a fighter pilot before he became a writer? Did you know Helen Sharman was the first British astronaut to fly in space? We have really enjoyed producing lots of work across the curriculum around these two people and creating our display in the hall this afternoon. Have a look at our science pictures below where we had to investigate which paper was the best for Roald Dahl to write on. It had to look nice, be strong and be easy to fold to make lines. Other pictures also show the children making their own Mir Space Station which Helen Sharman flew to space on in 1991.
