This is what we have done at Birches Head Academy
Held lessons for every student in Years 7, 8 and 9 on the theme ‘Torn From Home’.
We have joined the ‘Postcard Project’ and students have worked in pairs to learn about the story of two of the survivors of genocide and write a postcard to be sent to them. We have also had Assemblies for several year groups on the same theme of looking at survivors of genocide and what we can learn from Holocaust Memorial Day
We have had starter activities for every lesson on Friday 25th January 2019 incorporating Holocaust Survivor poetry and all students had the opportunity to take a booklet and sticker provided by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.
Attached are some examples of postcards written from our students to two survivors of genocide and they are absolutely lovely!
