Black History Month

In October 2018 we celebrated Black History Month. We celebrated the achievements of many heroes from past and present. We had a whole school competition to research on how black  people made a significant difference in the world. Children presented their findings in many different ways such as information porters, word searches and 3D models.

 

Work has been displayed around school to show off the fantastic work done during the month. Mrs Ginty and Ms Beverly conducted a celebration assembly where competition winners were announced and given certificates and winning prizes. Even our local book shop had winners work on display! To see the winning displayed in the bookshop was wonderful for the children and a great boost for those in our community.

We were also treated to a visit from Griot Chinyere. Griot is a traditional African storyteller from West Africa. Her stories all have a moral theme.
