We Are All Born Free – Amnesty International

Our Religious Education Unit at the moment is Mission Possible.

It deals with looking at issues of justice and injustice, not only in the time of Jesus,

but also in our world today.

We began our unit by looking at the Declaration of Human Rights.

We read the book

We are all born free.

We acknowledge and thank Amnesty International for the following video.

Take a closer look at the charter of Human Rights.

Here is an easier way to understand the Charter:

The Piano – Amazing Animation by Aidan Gibbons, Music by Yann Tiersen

We acknowledge and thank Aidan Gibbons and Yann Tiersen for this wonderful and amazing animation.

As part of our RE unit this term on New Beginnings,

we watched the above animation called the Piano.

It fitted in well with our discussion of memories, and losing people we love.

As part of Literacy, and RE, we wrote narratives based on the animation.

We enjoyed writing our short stories, and we hope you enjoy reading some of the finished pieces.
