William Cuffay exploration in Year 5

Published

In Year 5 we marked Black History Month through the exploration of British Trailblazers. We looked at the example of William Cuffay and we were inspired by his bravery and courage when standing up for change. He played an important role in persuading the authorities to amend the Master and Servant Law in colonies, before dying in poverty in July 1870. The  children reflected on the significance of his life and how his bravery has helped shape our community today. The children considered how they could be brave and stand up for injutsice in our communities.
