Black History Week

In Black History Week, each class learnedabout black people from the past and present who have shown courage in standing up for equal rights for all people around the world. Key Stage 1 found out about Jamaican nurse, Mary Seacole, who bravely served in the Crimea at the same time as Florence Nightingale. Years 3 and 4 have been learning about modern black heroes such as Marcus Rashford whose recent campaigning led to much better provision for children. Finally, Years 5 and 6 have been learning about the life of the great campaigner for freedom, Nelson Mandela. Let’s hope that learning about all of these heroes has a lasting impact on our children.
