Black history month.

In 5SW we were really interested in Black History Month. We focused our learning on Windrush and the people who traveled to Britain on Windrush Empire. The children were really empathetic and disagreed with the discrimination many of the Caribbean people faced after their arrival.

We created our own Windrush poems and tried to imagine what those people were feeling and leaving behind when they travelled to Britain.

An example of our windrush poetry.
We also used oil pastels to represent the setting that those travelling to Britain would be leaving. We used bright colours to try and emphasise what it may be like in the Caribbean.
