Building Empathy and Exploring Human Rights
Such an exciting week in the Primary School this week!
A visit from Mrs Emmerson who is a member of the’ Human Rights Watch Group’ to tell us about her work around the world, spectacular ‘Culture Rooms’ to teach our students about our different cultures and to appreciate our diversity, simulation games of ‘being a refugee’ and ‘culture clash’ and a visit from a speaker who works with refugee children here in Berlin (www.theyhavenamesberlin.org) . There was some very powerful learning happening, which made a big impact on our students. We now discuss how we can take action to help refugees and I will let you know what we all decide to do.
Thank you very much to all the parents who worked so hard to make the Culture rooms so interesting and creative. We all learned a lot about our different countries and we all experienced the feeling of community as well as diversity, it was a wonderful day. Thank you too, to Lisa Roy, Maryam Samii and Brent Lund- Bruning who worked so hard to make the week such a success.
We have a new member of staff who will be joining us in an assistant role. Mr Mannning is a qualified teacher from the States who has a lot of experience with young children in the classroom and also in coaching. He has been very helpful already as some of our teachers have been attending Professional Development courses and we needed cover. Welcome to our school Mr Manning!
Enjoy the weekend and kind regards,
