Today we had Derrick in from the British Red Cross who talked to us about refugees and asylum seekers. We also discussed what stereotypes were and how harmful they can be. We definitely made sure that we didn't say all pine cones looked the same and we carefully saw the differences and found our own pine cone in the pile! We also learnt that the word 'immigrant' is not a negative word - it just means that you have moved from another country. We discovered that lots of children in the class were immigrants or had family members who are immigrants. We celebrated this and the journeys we had made.
