National Refugee Week
Refugee Week takes place every year across the world in the week around World Refugee Day on the 20 June. In the UK, Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities.
Last year in school we all learnt about refugees during refugee week and our work is still displayed in the junior corridor. Can you remember which book your class read and who you learnt about?
