Refugee Visit for Year 4

In Geography we are exploring why people move around the world. We have discovered that some people do not have the choice to migrate, but are fleeing as refugees. We had a visit from a woman named Khadija who fled from her home in Syria to keep her family safe. We learned how beautiful Syria was before the war began and how hard it was for her to get to our safe country. This opportunity allowed us to recognise how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful and safe country where our opportunities are endless.
