Black History Month is a great way to celebrate and recognise the contribution of black people to British society. We all play a significant role in teaching children about the importance of having respect and tolerance for all cultures. Black History Month is a time to remember and celebrate the forgotten people who helped to shape the UK. We feel it is very important that our children see themselves represented in the classroom. Ultimately, We want Black History to be visible throughout our curriculum (not just a month), whilst still meeting the aims of the National Curriculum.
Each year group has had a different theme to focus their learning on. Reading and sharing stories with characters from a diverse range of backgrounds throughout the month has also been a key aspect in each classroom.
To celebrate the pupils hard work on Black History, we have created a large collaborative display. This display of the children’s work is just a small reflection of the learning that has happened this month. More examples of great work will be added soon.
