Miriam Halahmy – Saving Hanno – for Years 3 and 4

Friday, June 17, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Miriam Halahmy, author of The Emergency Zoo, will be leading a poetry workshop and talking about her new book, Saving Hanno, a tale of friendship inspired by the Kindertransport  – true stories of refugee children who came to Britain fleeing Nazi. This webcast is suitable for your Year 3 and Year 4 classes.

Miriam’s session 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 (20-24th 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 Norfolk Schools of Sanctuary 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. 

You only need to book one place for your school.  The webcast link will be emailed nearer the time.
