Black History Month: KS1
Years 1 and Year 2 have had such a brilliant week exploring Black History Month activities in class! To kick off the week, the children participated in a lively interactive workshop where they worked together to re-tell a Ghanaian Anansi story through actions and words. They loved learning about Anansi and both year groups have also linked their Literacy work this week to the mischievous spider! Both year groups have also produced beautiful pieces of art linked to different black artists; Year 1 created vibrant sculpture of Caribbean fruit inspired by Veronica Ryan and Year 2 made colourful collages inspired by Lois Mailou Jones. We can’t wait to put these on display! Other highlights have also included learning about the Windrush journey and making thank you cards to honour the contribution of the Windrush generation to post-war Britain, as well as listening to different examples of music such as calypso and jazz!
