At the beginning of October, KS2 has a wonderful time celebrating Black History Month.
In class, each year group chose a different inspirational Person to base all their work around, which resulted in some fantastic biography writing, and amazing portraits. The children found that learning about people such as Rosa Parks, and Desmond Tutu, was incredibly interesting.
Alongside class based work, pupils were lucky enough to be able to do some very hands on learning- each class had an African Drumming session where they learnt to play drums and sang some traditional rhymes and chants.
To finish of the week, we welcomed a choir who traveled all the way from London to deliver some world class singing lessons. Pupils all learnt a song and performed them alongside the choir at the end of the day. This was an amazing opportunity for the children, as they learnt some key singing skills, as well as having a lot of fun.
It was a wonderful week and an excellent celebration!
