“Do you think like a scientist? Because if you like to ask questions, listen to others, notice changes or simply let your mind wonder… then you already are! Science isn’t just a classroom subject, it’s a way of exploring and understanding the world you live in and YSA Juniors is your perfect companion on this adventure!
Think of YSA Juniors like a curiosity diary. Go out and discover something new, ask lots of questions, have a go yourself and share your findings with a friend! Soon you’ll have an activity sheet full of stickers to celebrate everything you’ve learnt and a brain bursting with ideas! Have fun and who knows what you’ll discover next!”
YSA Patron, broadcaster and presenter of CBeebies ‘Do You Know?’
A Day of Welcome is an opportunity for schools to engage with issues relating to refugee migration, and to understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary. Schools can register to receive exclusive access to resources, suitable for their age group. If you are based in Norfolk, Cambridgeshire or Essex there are also additional materials available which explore refugee histories in your county.
There is no fixed template for how A Day of Welcome should operate. You can pick and choose what fits your situation from the resources and recommendations that you will receive. It is designed to be a focal point for children and young people to be involved with Refugee Week 2021 (14-20th June).
