The book we are looking at this half term in English is The Promise. On Friday, Haniya fantastically acted as the little girl in the middle of the depressed city surrounded by the railings. When she tried to escape, the railings, in turn, commented on how nasty and cruel she was stealing from an old lady. It wasn’t until they listened to how she had no other choice and was desperate that the railings realised she was just trying to survive. Fantastic lesson full of empathy!
