Black history month 2020


During the last week of this half term (19th-23rd October) we will be celebrating Black History Month. We will have discussions with children about diversity within our community and the importance of respect for all members of society. Some of the resources which we will be using in school are linked below. We will discuss this topic in a supportive way, led by the children’s questions and thoughts.  

Votesforschools Anti-Racism - KS2
Votesforschools - KS1 Standing Up

The lessons explore the impact of systemic racism and the changes the recent Black Lives Matter protests hoped to prompt. While these are serious themes, please rest assured we introduce students to them in an age-appropriate way.

Here are some links to other resources which we may use as part of our Black History Month celebration:

The Post-box Competition
