Black History Month 2020 - Celebrating Diversity

In Year 1 we have read a book about Ruby Bridges first day at school. We talked about what her first day experiences were like and compared them to ours. We shared ideas on how we could be kind and bring a more positive change.

Harvey tells us about BHM in Woodpeckers

In Year 2 we learned about 

  • Lilian Bader
  • Stormzy
  • Marcus Rashford and 
  • John Kent. 

We then mixed with the other class and explained what our favourite part of Black History Month was and why. 

 

" I enjoyed learning about John Kent because he inspired lots of people to go into the policeforce"

" I liked Marcus Rashford because he's so kind and generous. He's also brave because he spoke to the government"

"I like learning about Lilian Bader because she encouraged lots of girls to go into the airforce"

Year 4 

 

To celebrate Black History Month, Year 4 were luck enough to take part in an African Dance workshop. We learnt new moves and enjoyed putting them together in a sequence. 

 

We also worked in partners across the year group to research about black people who played a significant role in the past and present to fight for change and equality. We then combined our research to create a quilt work pattern.

Year 5- Celebrating Black History Month

To celebrate Black History Month, Year 5 have been learning how to dance like Diversity! We watched a tutorial with Ashley Banjo and practiced some moves!

 

We have also been listening to some poems by Benjamin Zephaniah, which we absolutely loved! We then wrote a poem of our own.

Year 6 - An Investigation into Aspiration

 

aspiration

/aspəˈreɪʃ(ə)n/

 

noun

a hope or ambition of achieving something.

By exploring the lives and work of three current British individuals - Maggie Aderin-Pocock (scientist), Lemn Sissay (poet), and Lewis Hamilton (athlete) - the children have identified the importance of support systems, paying and receiving compliments, and identifying personal values and what this would look like in the person they aspire to be.
