WHOEVER YOU ARE – by Mem Fox and WHERE DID YOU COME FROM?

People are connected to the places in which they live.  Their lives reflect those places.  Some of those places are different from our place, but some of those places are the same.  Sometimes we forget that people might look different from us on the outside but on the inside we are often just the same.  Look at the children in this story by Mem Fox.

This week is HARMONY DAY WEEK and we are going to be celebrating with a ‘flash mob”  singing event on Thursday across the whole school.  This story reminds us that people might look different on the outside, but we are all quite similar on the inside, no matter where we come from.

You will taking home a homework research sheet to share with your parents and to ask them for information about your families (parents, grandparents, great-grandparents).  Please write down the interesting stories and bring it back by next week TUESDAY 26 MARCH so that we can all share our stories on the Wednesday!  I hope you find out lots of interesting information about where your family originally came from…. 😎
