It was fantastic to see so many of you get involved in our celebration of Black History Month this October at Wybunbury Delves. We have collated your work (and we know there are still more to be collected) and made a display in our main corridor. I'm sure you'll be as impressed as we are to showcase the work you completed.
During the month of October we celebrated Black History Month in school. This year 2020, the 33rd Black History Month in the UK was celebrated – the first was in 1987. Black History Month is a way to celebrate and recognise the contribution of Black people to British society. Black History Month in the UK celebrates the History, Arts and Culture of Black British people.
In Early Years, KS1 and KS2 we read a collection of books to learn more about how black people have contributed and changed our society. In Early Years, we read a fantastic book called 'The Magic Hair Swap' and in ks1 and 2, we learnt about Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr and you all had plenty to say about what you had learnt. We have added your pupil voice to our display for you to read. In ks2, we also had assemblies focusing on Black History, exploring and developing our understanding about the recent 'Black Lives Matter' protests.
