Windrush 2020 - Nurture class
In the nurture class we began by watching videos and reading information about the Windrush. We then took part in a range of activities to help us relate to their experiences. First, we imagined that our family had told us that we would be moving to a new country. We had to write a postcard to our best friend to tell them the news. Next we had to think about what we would pack in our suitcase.
Next, we thought about how we would like to be treated when we arrived in our new country. We mind mapped ideas of how we would like to be welcomed by others. After that we did some role play. Miss Lye told us to imagine that we had a new child joining our class from another country. We had to write a postcard to them to welcome them.
We began by watching videos and reading about what it means to be a refugee. We learned about a range of children’s experiences who are refugees. We then took part in the 8 simple acts challenge which involves completing 8 simple activities to help us understand the experiences of Refugees. One of the acts was to write a poem imagining a world that we would like.
