My name is not Refugee

The acclaimed picture book My name is not Refugee was written by Kate Milner.

The book follows a little boy and his mother on a journey from their home in an unnamed country at war, to a safe place far away.

The book deals with the uncertainty, the anxiety, the loss of the bond between parent and child.

On many pages there are questions directly to the reader that encourage sympathy and reflection – what would you do if this happened to you?

      History of my village

      This resource aims to support schools in developing pupils’ listening and speaking, research skills and technology skills. Through research, the children will get to know some of the history and culture of the area in which they live.

      This is a great opportunity for pupils to practice their Gaelic outside the classroom and get to know Gaelic speakers in their own area.

      With support perhaps from a Historical Society or a Gaelic Development Officer, the interviews could be face to face, on the phone or over the internet. Each council will have different rules depending on the technology allowed and rules regarding safety on the internet, eg, mobile phones, Zoom, Skype etc
