Black History Month

As part of our ongoing work to celebrate diversity, this year we continue to learn about significant individuals in class. Last year, we focussed on individuals who were nominated by parents, carers and children from families within our school community. 


This month, rather than focussing on one person, we are focussing on numerous individuals in recognition of Black History Month. This week children have investigated the musical careers of Winifred Atwell (1914 – 1983), Dame Shirley Bassey (1937 – present) and Labi Siffre (1945 – present).


Next week and up until half term, pupils will continue to research people who have made a difference.
