We have received a lovely letter from Amnesty International addressed to our Year 6 pupils praising them for their wonderful poems about the refugee crisis.
“We here are at Amnesty International UK are amazed by your work and wanted to send you a huge thank you. We Sleep Under The Same Stars is an incredible book. It shows that you are not only brilliant and creative, but also able to empathise with refugees around the world.
The situation currently faced by refugees around the world is difficult, sad and scary. Caring people like you, who try to understand the problems and what refugees are experiencing, and who are willing to speak out for refugees and their human rights is exactly what we need. We here at Amnesty believe that speaking out is one of the most important things you can do to make change in the world.”
