Year 6

The Arrival

This term, in Literacy and Guided Reading, Year 6 have been studying a graphic novel: The Arrival by Shaun Tan.

 

The story illustrates the journey of a father who has to leave his wife and daughter to go and live in another  country in search of a better life for him and his family. The book encourages the children to discuss and learn about refugees, asylum seekers and migrants .  Using this book, the children have written poems, written a persuasive letter to Ms Ryan explaining why the school should welcome refugees and they will be writing a flashback narrative using the characters in the book. The children have already learnt lots about refugees and the perilous journeys taken by some to find a sanctuary for their families.
