This week we have been celebrating Black History Month! We shared the story Follow the Drinking Gourd about how slaves followed a formation of stars (the shape made by several stars together looking like a drinking gourd) to freedom and they learnt about the stars through a song. You can listen to the story and sing the song using our Black History Month playlist:
Talk with you adults about the challenge questions below.
How do you think the slaves felt?
What exactly is a slave?
Why is slavery wrong?
What is racism?
Thank you to all the adults who came to our Open Morning 🙂
It will be Red Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please bring one toy/picture/item of choice if you would like to. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦
Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing and playing! Make sure you comment on the blog!
