Black History Month

Through Black History month we are learning about key people who have made a difference and an impact in our world.

On Tuesday we had a special assembly to launch Black History month. The children are taking this learning on in their classes through story, art and song.

Year 4 sang a wonderful song “Blackbird” which was written by Paul McCartney. He wrote this song about the civil rights struggle for African Americans after reading about race riots in the US.

On Friday, during worship, the whole school learned all about the inspiration of Rosa Parks and throughout the week it has been amazing to see and hear of the children’s wonderful understanding of the many inspirational black people, past and present and their positive impact on our society.
