In literacy Year 5 are studying the book Oranges in No Man’s Land by Elizabeth Laird, the book is based upon a little girls experiences in Beirut during the civil war that raged in Lebanon. The children have enjoyed the book and have produced some fantastic pieces of work applying their skills and knowledge in their writing. Within this work the children prepared and performed some role-plays focusing on Ayesha’s experiences, the children demonstrated a deep level of empathy and understanding towards the characters and this then informed their writing back in the classroom.
