English Hub: Virtual Classroom for Refugee Week with Mark Arrigo & Steven Chatterton

Free virtual classroom visit for Refugee Week with Mark Arrigo and Steven Chatterton

This event is recommended for pupils aged 6 to 9 years.

The National Literacy Trust is providing the opportunity for classes across the UK to join writers Mark Arrigo and Steven Chatterton on Thursday 20 June at 10am, to listen to their telling of the story of Adnan: The Boy Who Helped His Mummy Remember. Children will
be given the opportunity to reflect on the theme of home whilst exploring the beautiful illustrations used throughout the book.

To help you mark Refugee Week after the event, the National Literacy Trust has created a follow up classroom lesson which supports teachers in further exploring the book and reflecting on Refugee Week’s 2024 theme of Our Home. These resources will be available to download for free on the National Literacy Trust’s main Refugee Week page (please click here) from 20th May.

Please click here for more information and to sign up. You will then receive an email with your link to join the event. If you cannot access Zoom, or are unable to attend live, don’t worry. In your confirmation email they will send a link to a YouTube page, where you can either watch the event stream in live time, or watch the event recording until Thursday 27th June.
