A Day of Welcome – The Power of Welcome (upper KS2)

Friday, June 14, 2024 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Award-winning children’s author and illustrator, Nadine Kadaan, will be joining us live for A Day of Welcome. Your pupils will explore some of her work, learn more about Nadine’s homeland Syria and her own experience of leaving her country and settling in the UK. In advance of the event you will receive an extract of The Power of Welcome to learn more about Nadine and to help you prepare your class for the session.

This webcast is ideal for pupils aged 9-11 (Year 5-6 in England & Wales, P4-5 students in Scotland).

‘A powerful graphic novel exploring the struggle for survival of displaced people. With true stories from Ukraine, Somalia, Bosnia, Syria and Afghanistan, this moving book collects important tales about the real journeys of people forced from their homes by conflict.’

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.
