Themed Week - Refugees: Many Sides to a Story...

We spent a whole week learning about refugees. We hear a lot about refugees in the news but ... what is the real story?

 

During our week we learned about so many things:

  • Why people become refugees: about wars and natural disasters
  • What Jesus said about refugees
  • What it feels like to be displaced
  • What it feels like to be overcrowded
  • How  a Christian should respond to seeing people who are forced to flee
  • What governments could or should do
  • What it feels like to share resources or space
  • How we can help
  • How a child's voice can be heard
  • How, as children, we can influence the future
  • A Yellow Island is for Yellow People!

    We are happy on our island.

  • We will welcome purple people to our green island!

    There was disaster on the purple island (Mr Smith spilled the water on it). Purple people are on our island. They are bringing their purple people ways with them! What benefits do they bring to us? What could be the problems?
