Moving into the hall for our classes this week has got us thinking- what might it be like for children who are forced to leave their homes in a hurry? Classes 2 and 3 joined forces and considered the following questions:
What might it be like to have to leave your home and live in a temporary shelter?
How would you obtain and share out a limited food supply?
What problems might you face when you don't know where there is clean drinking water?
How might it feel to be rejected by people who you thought you could rely on?
The children entered into the simulation with great attitudes and showed brilliant problem solving skills. Best of all though, when we reflected on the exercise the next day, many children said that they would now try to show kindness and consideration to someone who was a refugee in this country.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
