Black History Month in Year 5

Published

October is Black HIstory Month

This week children in Year 5 have been learning about Black History Month and influential people who have made a change. 

In English they have been studying the poetry of Benjamin Zephaniah, in particular 'Talking Turkeys'. (Look out for an entertaining video of some Year 5 children performing this poem which will be coming soon to the gallery!)

They have also been researching some other famous figures and creating information posters. Some of Year 5's role models include Martin Luther King Jr, Mary Seacole and Harriet Tubman. Have a look at some of the great posters in the gallery.
