At BRW, we have been celebrating Black History Month. This year, the focus is ‘Saluting Our Sisters’, which recognises that despite their countless contributions to society, the exceptional achievements of black women, in particular, have too often been overlooked or forgotten.
In Year 6, we’ve been celebrating Black History Month and have been so excited to learn about the achievements of black women. Each morning, we listen to a playlist of music celebrating black artists and the children have chosen some inclusive books to read in class. As part of our BHM project, we chose someone who inspired us and researched their amazing contributions to society. To accompany our research, we then some collage artwork to represent the person. Take a look at our work! These will be displayed in the Year 6 classroom after half term.
