    In the documentary, God Grew Tired Of Us, we saw how difficult it is for refugees to try to fit into a country where the culture is very different.

    If you had to relocate to another country, where would you go and why?

    Give three reasons to justify your answer.

    You might think of lawn bowls as a game that only old people play but it’s actually something that more and more young people are doing. Matt went to meet one of them an up and coming young player who’s following in the footsteps of his grandad. (Thanks BTN)

    In BTN we met a boy whose favourite sport is lawn bowls.
