Black History Celebration


In October, we celebrated Black History Month by providing our children and families with a range of delightful and educational experiences for them to enjoy. Highlights included visits to various food shops and three different hairdressers salons in the local area, where the children learned about different kinds of hair and hair styles, different types of foods and other everyday culturally diverse objects. The children greatly enjoyed the trips and later recreated their visits through role-playing activities. On other days, parents came in to the school to cook tasty dishes from their home cultures, and we had art and craft activities for everyone to enjoy while we ate the delicious food. 

On the last day before half term (Friday 21st October) we held our Black History celebration. The children, families and staff all had fun singing and dancing together and telling stories to each other, aided and abetted by our visiting story teller and African drummer, Sola and Ade. Parents cooked even more wonderful and appetising food and everyone enjoyed craft activities alongside the children. It was a really lovely way to end term before the break.
