Year 5 and 6 Welcome Event

Year 5 and 6 have been working hard all this term, thinking about the Dignity of the Human Person. They have explored how people sometimes have to leave their homes and travel far away. They found out about being an evacuee in war time in the United Kingdom. They discovered how difficult it is to be a refugee,leaving behind everything you love and making a new start.

They decided to hold a Welcome Event and practised making simple food including bread and soup to serve to our visitors. Today’s menu included 4 types of bread and 4 flavours of soup!

We were all delighted to have so many guests arrive from City of Santuary and St Chad’s Sanctuary as well as some of our own parents.

They children performed The Carol of the Bells and a poem, Everything Touches by Roger McGough,  and we were honoured to have a performance of a poem, The Colour of Home,  created  by a group of writers from Stories of Hope and Home. (You can read it here)
