We have been learning all about Black History Month in class, especially influential people who have positively impacted the world that we live in today.
We have researched information on people like Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, Helen Suzman and Martin Luther King J. In English, we channelled how these people may have felt about apartheid and some pupils even took on their character’s role! We had our very own Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela in Turquoise class (to name but a few!).
Children prepared for ‘hot-seating’ their given characters and then answered questions from the class as if they were really them. We had some amazing questions and responses. Turquoise class expressed feelings and motivations about why these amazing, life changing people did what they did.
Well done, Turquoise class!
