Black History is a crucial part of our school curriculum. As well as noting Black History Month, which is also marked in the media, figures of black history are embedded within the wider school curriculum, including music, history, geography and science. Although the project began before lockdown, some of this page was created by the excellent home learning projects conducted between children who were able to go to school and those who had to learn remotely during the affected year.
Children in Year 4 were proud to share some of their Learning Log homework to cover some key figures from Black History.
