Black History Month

Please follow the link to see what the children have been studying during Black History Month...

For Black History Month, the children at St Christopher's have been learning about black history, why it is important, and celebrating the achievements of black men and women from the past and today. Each year group has been learning about different important icons and researching what it was that their important icons achieved throughout their lives. Using role play and other interactive learning strategies, the children have been able to develop a deeper understanding of their important icons and the challenges they may have faced throughout their lives. Character strengths such as resilience, tolerance, kindness and empathy have also been built upon, when tackling challenging concepts such as adversity, racism and segregation.

In Reception, the children have been learning about Lenny Henry.

In Year 1, the children have been learning about Mae Jemison.

In Year 2, the children have been learning about Nicola Adams.

In Year 3, the children have been learning about Rosa Parks.  

In Year 4, the children have been learning about Mary Seacole.

In Year 5, the children have been learning about Maya Angelou and Barack Obama

In Year 6, the children have been learning about Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela.


Following a sequence of engaging lessons, our children were given the time to present their learning to the rest of the school. We have also created an exciting new display area to showcase some of the children's wonderful work to inspire and educate others walking past. Feel free to come and take a closer look next time you are in school!
