The Boy at the Back of the Classroom – Mayor of London Project


Our year 6 children have been working on a special project in conjunction with the Mayor of London. Using the brilliant novel ‘The Boy at the Back of the Classroom’ by Onjali Q Rauf, our children have been gaining a wider understanding of the circumstances faced by many refugees as they make difficult and life changing journeys. This whole project has helped our children to ensure that they show understanding and kindness to refugees, something which is particularly relevant with the current situation in the Ukraine.

One aspect of the project was for the children to design a poster showing support to refugees. These posters are going to be projected on Dagenham Library during the last week of March and the first week of April.

Here are some of our students sharing their fantastic posters.
