We are thinking about Black History Month into our learning at the moment to celebrate our heritage, diversity and the contributions key people have made to all our lives. This young man was working with his friends in The Snug and decided that he wished to create a flag which he called ‘People United’. The children all drew around their hands to show that they were working together and all part of the same team, and he even helped lead some learning to the group talking about his knowledge of Muhammad Ali, Arthur Ashe and Rosa Parks.
Separately, we had a visit from the Leadership Teams of The Priory and St Katharine’s this week as part of our school partnership program and they observed teaching and learning across the school. They were blown away with a Year 5 lesson which was discussing Michelle Obama and her autobiography and one of the children stood up and spoke with the class bravely about his own journey and challenges which the children listened to intently and responded to with empathy, engagement and wonderful conversations.
