As we all know, October is Black History Month!
Since we have half-term at the end of this important month, we think it would be amazing for everyone to have a think about Black history during the half-term.
Therefore, we are suggesting a whole school optional homework to complete over the half-term. This homework will be to create a project on the theme Black History is My History.
This project could be absolutely anything from a piece of artwork, or piece of writing that investigates Black History in your own history, heritage or family.
We have children from many different backgrounds and many different countries in our school, so we are asking everybody taking part to investigate Black history in their own background or country.
This doesn’t mean that you cannot take part if you are not Black; everyone’s heritage or history has been impacted by Black history, and you can explore this.
We think that this is an important area to look at during Black History Month, as Black history is different the world over. For example, Black history might look very different in Jamaica than it does in Australia.
This is an excellent way to explore your own background and heritage, which might be that your family (or you) were born or grew up in England, or in another part of the world.
We look forward to seeing what brilliant ideas you all have to show us after half-term!
