Hokusai class:

“We listened to our assembly about Floella Benjamin and we took the time to look at Black History Month in our own class too. This term we will place important events on our timeline and learn about Nelson Mandela. Later in the year, we will learn about old African empires when we have our topic on ancient civilisations.

Since the start of year 3, we have been learning about the Festival of Britain, which was a moment of great celebration across the nation, so we stopped to think about whether everyone in our community would have been welcome to the festival in 1950’s Britain.

History is stories about events, people and places, and everybody in our community has a story.”

Aleena, Aliza: “I learnt that this month is an opportunity to hear the stories and successes of people you don’t get to find out about, and events and places that people don’t know.”
