Refugee experience

25th January 16


IPC project: Year 5 students experience how refugees feel when they carry their own things to survive one day.

“My experience of being a refugee”:

“First we got out of class because they were throwing bombs and we went to the playground buddy area. With the things that we had we made a shelter. After a while we went to the ‘checkpoint’ to get bread, cheese and ham and things to drink. I felt excited and it was a very good experience. We also had to care for a ‘baby’. I learnt that you always need to work hard to get the things you want. I enjoyed it a lot because we did teamwork and we helped one another”.
