Black History Month

Throughout October, all year groups have celebrated Black History Month. They have focused on the achievements of a range of significant people whose actions had a positive impact on the lives of many millions of others. These have included well known figures such as Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks, as well as Ruby Bridges, who as a six year old child broke down racial barriers through her choice of school. Year Six have linked their Black History Month theme with their preparations for Remembrance, and have been researching Walter Tull, a World War 1 soldier and professional footballer, as well as Noor Inayat Khan, a remarkable woman who was sent to France as the first female wireless operator in World War II, helping the French Resistance. The children have produced a range of outcomes such as poems, art work, factfiles and even their own ‘I have a dream’ speeches.
