Here's what our children made on Holocaust Memorial Day in the primary schools across our Parish of Bewsborough.
Year 1 & 2 learned about six sided star of David and "lit" up
a star and said a prayer to remember children in war
Year 3 thought about memory, played the memory game,
thought about what they would take in a suitcase if they
needed to flee and finally drew a picture of who they would
like to remember in a photograph.
Year 4 & 5 followed the story of a girl from a primary school
called Vera, from her being sent by Kindertransport, to
arriving in England to resettling to a new life without her family.
The orange notes are what the children thought she was feeling.
Then they looked at a picture painted by a holocaust survivor
of his father sending him away quickly. The children considered
how they would feel through the bombing of Warsaw and being
separated from people they love.
