We will be taking part in Refugee Week again this year. Refugee Week is the world’s largest arts and culture festival celebrating the contributions, resilience and creativity of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. The theme for this year is Compassion.
In preparation for Refugee Week this year we have purchased a range of resources to support teaching at an appropriate age level in each class.
Here are some of the activities that the pupils have been taking part in during Black History Month.
Class 1 have been making Kwanzaa African necklaces. The black beads symbolise people of Africa, red to remind everyone of the struggles of the African people, and green for growth.
Class 2 have been making traditional North African Khamsa amulets.
Class 5 have been researching black scientists through history who have helped us understand more about the ocean.
