Black History Month at Kingshurst
Throughout October, we will be looking at a range of influential people for Black History Month. We will look at the achievements and a range of quotes from both historic and modern day people. All children will participate in a range of activities and learning opportunities throughout the month.
- Person of the day – a focus on UK and modern figures making a difference to society.
- Collective Worship – an assembly focusing on black history and promoting talk about equality and rights.
- Stories that promote discussion about equality and representation
- PSHE - 'Same but different' A chance to reflect on ourselves and celebrating difference
Each year group will look at an influential figure in detail. The children will explore the importance of what that person did, how they impacted the world and then produce work such as biographies, artwork and drama pieces to reflect their learning. Work will be celebrated on class Dojo and a selection displayed in a central area in school.
