Black History Month Special Event

Date: 17th Oct 2021 @ 10:43pm

Today Year 6 were lucky enough to have a live zoom meet up with Donavan

Christoper, a poet, also known as Rappaman.

Not only did he read us some of his fantastic poetry, he inspired us to dig deeper and find out more about the origins of Black History Month by researching Carter G Woodson. The children really enjoyed finding out about this inspirational figure and were curious to find out more as well as enjoying listening to a fab poem about him.

Donavan also asked us to find out more about other black heroes:

The Scar eyed Queen of Kush

Ruby Bridges

Frederick Douglas

Mary Seacole

And to research the Ancient World of African Kingdoms such as Nubia and Kush as well as more current heroes like the European Championship footballers who played for England this year!

 

 

Here is what the children said after the zoom...
