Refugee Pen Pals
Some of our year 5 and 6 pupils have become pen pals with refugee children in Istanbul.
This is in partnership with 'Small Projects Istanbul'.
'Small projects Istanbul is an independent ngo operating a community centre which provides enrichment, integration and livelihood activities for the mostly Syrian displaced families rebuilding their lives in the city.' (https://www.smallprojectsistanbul.org/)
This experience has given the children the opportunity to learn about other children and to develop empathy towards others.
