Refugee Week 2020

Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, encouraging a better understanding between communities. 

The theme of Refugee Week 2020 is ‘Imagine’

and takes place primarily between 15th – 21st June. 

 

 

The resource pack and animation on this page are for primary school age children

and their parents/guardians.

The animated poem below is called ‘Help Them Feel At Home’, it tells the story of a young refugee named Sana and a toy dinosaur named Dino and their difficult journey to find safety in the UK.

It has been created to be watched before completing the activities found

in the resource pack.

In our poem Tony the Dinosaur was friendly to Dino and Sana. Imagine a new person is coming to your school from far away. Discuss with someone

 How could you make them feel welcome? (Actions) For example... Offer your chair, smile, ask them how they feel, share your pencil case.

 What qualities do you need to be a good friend? For example... Helpful, caring, friendly, funny, generous.

 

 

 

Now we are going to create a poem about friendship. Choose friendly qualities and actions from the previous page to complete the poem below.

 • A friend is someone who is..........................helpful.

• A friend will........................smile at you.

• A friend will...................share their toys.

 • A friend is someone who is...........kind and funny .

 

Now it’s your turn... You can write as many poems as you like!

 • A friend is someone who is.................................................................

• A friend will.............................................................................................

• A friend will.............................................................................................

• A friend is someone who is.................................................................

 

Well done! You have demonstrated that you can show kindness to another person and be creative. Once you have finished your poem you might want to read it aloud, share it with someone at home or put it on your wall!
