Today year 3 had been absolutely amazing during their PE lesson, the coaches gave many of them so many praises! They played so well in the teamwork games by communicating and showing off active skills. Well done year 3, this has been the best PE lesson ever today!
Today we were so lucky to be joined virtually by Meltem Avcil, a former Doncaster resident and the main subject for the book we have read ‘Meltem’s Journey – A Refugee Diary.’
We have started to think about why people come to Doncaster nowadays and Meltem joined us to share her personal and emotional story of how, as a young child, she fled her homeland to find herself in Doncaster of all places.
Following a time a detention centre, she eventually moved to Cambridge where she now lives.
Her story is one of determination and resilience and she was a real inspiration for the children this afternoon – they couldn’t wait to ask her questions.
For our final piece of writing, the children would really like to learn the stories behind our own school community and what attracts people to Doncaster or what makes people stay – so we would appreciate it if you could support your child, when they come home wanting to ask you questions about where you are from.
Today we had the privilege of taking part in a live video call with Meltem, a refugee from Turkey. We found out all about her journey from Turkey to Doncaster and her life as a refugee. We found out what brought her to Doncaster and how resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity has led to personal growth and success.
