No place like home

KS2: ages 7-11KS3: ages 11-14WebsitePDF

These activities from British Council Schools Online consider the situation of refugees, usually people who move from one country to another in order to escape from something or someone.

A starter activity involves discussion about the concept of ‘homes’ and ‘homelessness’ and exploring what it might be like to be forced to leave one’s home.

This can progress to longer schemes of work on conflict and peace and using dialogue-based learning by using the more extensive ‘Living Together – Refugee Education Pack’.

Suggestions are provided for using these resources as part of a partnership with a school in another country.
