Black History Month

Over the last couple of weeks at SPS we have continued to explore and celebrate Black History.

In assembly last week the children were set the challenge to teach the teachers about Black History – it has been pleasing to hear the number of children who have taken this on board and shared some of the knowledge they have acquired about significant black people from history – particularly from the new books on display in the library.

On Monday, the children in Years 5 & 6 participated in a Black History Month Workshop run by Chelsea FC Foundation focusing on individuals who ‘make history every day’ both within sport and wider world. The children have completed profiles on successful black individuals that they find inspiring. These will be entered in a competition for a behind the scenes day at Stamford Bridge.

On Tuesday morning all of the children in Years 3-6 participated in a special live assembly that explored the theme ‘Celebrating Our Sisters’, exploring the role that inspiration black women in particular have had in our society.

Our learning about Black History continues in lessons across the curriculum throughout October, with children discovering more about influential figures related to each subject/topic.
