A School of Sanctuary
Our curriculum focus for summer has been based on social justice and inspired by our work with Action Transport Theatre and the play Adrift.
Over the summer term all classes have been learning about social justice in their curriculum. To start the work, KS2 watched the play produced by Action Transport Theatre. Classes then went on to look at a range of books that built on the theme of migration and refugees. We explored the concept of home and explored the impact of having to move away to seek refuge.
Our younger children have been looking at the story of Paddington and thinking about how we could welcome newcomers to Woodfall.
Each year group looked at famous artists from around the world and how their journey to seek refuge from home impacted on their future careers and ambitions. To name a few artists Woodfall pupils studied: Freddie Mercury, Rita Ora, Regina Spektor, Tusse.
As we recognise 'Refugee Week' across the world, Woodfall children worked hard to try and understand the many reasons why humans across the world flee from their homes and the desperate challenges they may face, in order to find a safe sanctuary.
Here at Woodfall, we welcome all new comers into our community with open arms and a safe sanctuary that feels like home.
