Black History Month
October is Black History Month in the UK, an event that has been celebrated nationwide for more than 30 years. Its purpose is to recognise the contributions that black people have made to the UK over many generations.
We have discussed in class how black people have always been present in the UK throughout history but that there has been a lack of representation in the history books, and this is particularly apparent in our Roman history topic.
To help learn more about this month, we would like you to find out more about a black person from the past or present, who has made an important contribution to British or world history. You can present your research in any way you like - it could be a poster, PowerPoint, timeline, mini -book or leaflet, biography etc.
Please bring your finished work into school by 2nd November so that we can share what you have found out.
Welcome back! We are extremely excited to finally have the children back in Eagles. Things will be slightly different, but we have worked hard to try to make the changes as child friendly as possible. Our aim is to keep everyone safe and happy and back to learning.
Our topic this term is The Romans are Coming! We will be learning about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.
