To celebrate Black History Month this year, each class were given the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture. We all spent the day learning about one significant person in black history and why it is important that we celebrate it. Year 1 learnt about Rosa Parks and the 1955 bus boycott in America. They put together a fantastic performance of the events that took place on that day. Year 2 spent the day learning about Nelson Mandela. They wrote brilliant acrostic poems! Year 3 learnt about the very important Martin Luther King. They did some beautiful artwork based on negative and positive space. Year 4 spent the day researching a significant person in black history of their choice. They put together such detailed posters to share with their buddies in reception class!
At the end of the day we came together for a whole school service to share what we had learnt about our significant figure in black history. Take a look at our photos!
