Black History Week

Black History Week 2022

'Proud To Be Me'

What an inspirational Black History Week we all had! This year's overarching theme was 'Actions not Words' incorporating the theme 'Proud To Be Me' through some poignant stories.

 

The children focused their learning on the achievements of black individuals through history; individuals who have made a change to society through their actions. The children have produced some very informative fact-files about their significant person, as well as some lovely art work inspired by the books ‘The Proudest Blue’ and ‘Sulwe’.

 

Reception focused their learning on Madam CJ Walker and read the book ’The Mega Magic Hair Swap’, the children went on to create their own mega magic hair, thinking about what makes them special and even creating their own hair grower in the water tray, just like Madam CJ Walker herself! Take a look at some of the work the children have produced.
