Roundup Reporters: This week, KS2 had a visit from the Refugee Council, where they talked to the children about what an immigrant is, and what a refugee is. In the workshop, someone from the Refugee Council talked to the children about immigrants, asylum seekers, refugees and irregular immigrants. To understand the terrors of being a refugee better, they watched some videos of people fleeing their own country because of war; they did this to show what it would be like to have to flee your home and country. Along with the videos and talk, a refugee, Samira, now living in Knaresborough but originally from South Sudan, came in to tell her story. Oscar, from Y6, says “I was really fascinated by the reasons why people had to flee their home country and Samira’s story”. Also this week, Y5 and 6 made hot chocolate and s’mores to finish the outdoor education element of their Mayan theme. They added chilli power to give it an authentic Mayan taste. The children made these treats themselves, heating them over open fires. The cups the children drank from had been designed and decorated the previous week with Mayan gods, when they were making their quesadillas. Finley, from Y6, says “I really enjoyed making and eating the s’mores, the hot chocolate was very nice and I added some chilli powder it was spicy.”
