black history month
At Grafton Primary School we are proud to be celebrating Black History Month this October.
In the past we have looked at specific themes in Black History as a whole school such as Windrush and Freedom quilts.
This year different year groups are looking at different areas of Black History.
-In Early Years, children will be creating dream clouds based on Martin Luther King and the idea of having a dream to make something better.
-Years 1 and 2 will be looking at significant individuals that had an impact on the early changes to rights.
-Years 3 and 4 will be looking at the significant British black individuals who have had post boxes painted black in recognition of them, for example Walter Tull and Mary Seacole.
-Year 5 and 6 will be finding out about the impact of the British slave trade.
We look forward to sharing some of our class learning at the end of the month on the school website.
All children have these rights, no matter what their age, gender, religion, disability, culture or nationality is.
Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family, regardless of whether these are shared by the majority of the people in the country where they live.
