‘Together in God’s loving family, we believe, we learn, we grow.’
October is Black History Month! This year is the 33rd UK Black History Month. The aim of the month is to celebrate the history, arts and culture of influential black people. Awareness of, and education about, the history of white people is well-established, but black history can seem underreported and underrepresented. The objective of the month is to redress the balance to enable us all learn more about our shared History.
All years will be involved in looking at the importance of Black History. Early Years and KS1 will be looking at and listening to influential music e.g. reggae music and discussing how it makes them feel. Lower KS2 will be studying influential figures and presenting work to share their research within their class and upper KS2 will begin to study the impact of the Windrush Generation on Britain. We are all excited about the month and the learning that will happen to ensure that Black History Month is celebrated!
