A Day of Welcome – Bobble (KS1)

Friday, June 14, 2024 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

Author, Refugee Rights Campaigner and Speaker Gulwali Passarlay, will be joining us online to share a story with an important message. By reading and exploring BOBBLE with Gulwali, the children will gain an understanding of who refugees are, and explore how to make their classroom a more welcoming place. They’ll also get to meet a real live Bobble!

This webcast is ideal for pupils aged 5-7 (Year 1-2 in England & Wales, P2-3 students in Scotland).

‘Bobble is a story of courage, compassion and love. This beautifully illustrated fable is designed to make the big conversations a little easier. Bobble gives us an accessible way to connect with attitudes to migration, displacement and how we can educate ourselves and those around us about the needs of refugees.’

This live event forms part of A Day of Welcome, a day of solidarity and learning in schools that aims to build a culture of welcome and understanding for refugees and asylum seekers. This celebration is designed to support schools and families in marking Refugee Week (17-23 June) and to send a clear message that for those in need of sanctuary, our communities are welcoming places.

By registering to take part in the webcast, you are participating in A Day of Welcome. VNET will share your contact details with the team at A Day of Welcome who will be in touch with further activities and ideas that you could use as a complement to the webcast in order to mark A Day of Welcome and Refugee Week.
