The Waiting Place

Whales have been thinking this week about the subject of refugees and took part in a live webcast today with Dina Nayeri, author of the book ‘The Waiting Place’. As we were one of the first schools from across the country to sign up for the webcast, we were gifted a class set of her book and we have spent time reading it throughout this week, learning about the child refugees Dina met on her visit to refugee camps in Europe. The class also spent time thinking about how we could help refugee children feel welcome in school and came up with some great ideas on our welcome wreath. This was such a great opportunity for children to learn about these issues and the problems faced by others when they’re displaced from their homes.
