Black History Month

3 Little Birds in sign language!

In Year 1 we have been learning about the UK and Jamaica.  We have located the UK on a map of the world and located places in the UK and coloured the flags.  We then located Jamaica on a map of the world.  We coloured the Jamaican flag.  We learnt about 2 famous people from Jamaica - Usain Bolt and Bob Marley.  

In Year 2, we have been learning about who Mary Seacole is. We have found out lots of amazing new facts about her, such as, where she was born, why she is famous and how it is important to remember her. To celebrate Mary Seacole, the children carefully drew portraits of her and coloured these in. The children were extremely conscientious to ensure that they included all of Mary's medals. Take a look!

Year 6 made some fantastic posters

In Year 3, we began to learn about Nicola Adams and her incredible achievements at the Olympic Games. We talked about what made Nicola such a good role model and the way in which she always tried to push herself as an athlete, and as a person. Unfortunately, we began our two weeks of quarantining at this point so didn't get to finish the work in class but we will return to our lessons about Nicola Adams again before Christmas.
