Black History Month 2022!
Week one of our Black History Month awareness 2022 the children were asked a pre-learning question to find out what they already know about Black History. This helps the teachers to tailor the learning during the month.
The children watched an assembly to introduce the month and why it is crucial to learn about.
On 12th October we had a special visit from Devon Daly - a BBC Radio presenter who provides news for the African and Caribbean communities. He came in to deliver an assembly to our children from years 1-6. He shared some photographs and tales about himself and his families lives and how they came to live in England.
On Friday 21st October the children came to school wearing red, yellow/gold or green clothing to represent the colours for Black History Month.
We also had a visit from Momma's Soul Food Kitchen, who delivered an assembly about the food she makes and why. The children all then got to taste a variety of Caribbean food. The feedback from staff and children was all very positive.
The children all painted and printed their handprint in a pledge to promise to be kind to ALL!
