A primary school in Somerset is to be “twinned” with a refugee camp in Iraq.

Priddy and St Lawrence’s Primary School will send letters and pictures to Yazidi Refugee Camp School and link via the video chat app Facetime.

The aim is for pupils to learn what it is liked to be displaced by conflict and to raise funds for a new classroom.
