Seeking Refuge – Juliane’s journey from Zimbabwe
An animated documentary describing the experiences of 12 year old Juliane who spent years in a Zimbabwean orphanage before being reunited with her mother. Escaping together to the UK, Juliane continues to suffer from the effects of being separated from her mother at a young age, but is supported by her school who are helping her deal with her experiences. She describes the impact of being separated from her mother, and how the support she now receives is helping her to move on. First broadcast on the Learning Zone on BBC2 in June 2012 as part of the programme Seeking Refuge.
Could be a dynamic resource for all areas of the curriculum, in particular to PSHE and Citizenship, but also English, Geography, History and Art. A good illustration of why some people have to flee their country, and therefore helps raise questions about persecution and war. This could be used in PSHE and Citizenship lessons to start a discussion on what it's like for children adapting to life in the UK and the issues they are often dealing with when they arrive. This would provide a dynamic resource to start a discussion on the effects of separation from a loved one as well as exploring issues of bullying. In an English lesson it could generate discussion for the different genres of writing, providing an example of narrative and describing personal experiences.
