Room 15 – Miles for Refugees
Room 15 comprises an eclectic group of very determined young learners, each very much with their own personality and their own skills and abilities, likes and dislikes. Much of the learning in Room 15 is achieved through sensory activities and experiential learning. Group sessions can present a challenge for some of the learners and they work hard on the social skills that will assist them as they progress.
In Room 15 we have been exploring the differences and similarities between our lives and that of others. We took part in the British Red Cross Miles for Refugees project. We all went round the playground to simulate the miles that refugees travel seeking a safe space. Refugees use different forms of transport. In our class we used pacers, trikes, wheelchairs and our feet.
