Black History Day

Today we remembered Black History week. We worked with every class in mixed year groups. It was lovely to see everyone helping each other during our morning activities. 

Our focus was on Nelson Mandela and we looked at some of his very inspiring quotes. 

We learnt that, in the past, black people had to live a life of slavery and were not treated equally. 

In Hedgehog and Rabbit class we learned about Freedom Quilts that were used to send secret messages about planning a journey to freedom. 

We made a whole school quilt using various materials including felt sewing, printing and colouring. 

We got together at the end of the day and shared our exciting work and sang all together 'Free Nelson Mandela'.
