For Black History Month the Puffins have been focussing on the amazing life of Rosa Parks. The children have learnt how the actions of one black women not giving up her seat on a bus had a big impact on the lives of fellow black American and history. They come to understand how people can be tolerant towards each and why it is important in our world.
‘Rosa Parks was brave for staying on the bus even though she would be in trouble’ Harvey
‘Rosa Parks was amazing and strong to stand up for herself’ Maya
‘People need to show respect for each other even if they look different’ Alexander
We have been hard at work continuing our theme of pirates in history today. We used fact sheets, videos, books and internet searches to find out and record facts about the famous pirates Blackbeard and Anne Bonny. Here are some of the childrens work Lewis, Brooke and Frankie L.
The Puffins have been hard at work this week learning the ‘Three Little Pigs’ story for English, all about Guy Fawkes for History and place value in Maths they have earned their golden time. They had lots of fun dressing up and building fantastic ramps for their cars.
Today we started to think about bonfire night ready for Thursday. We started the lesson by thinking about what we already know about bonfire night and then learnt some new facts. We used this information to then make posters about keeping safe and giving key information.
To celebrate Black History Month we started to learn about Rosa Parks. The children were very interested in her story and had lots of questions to ask. They came to the conclusion that the way black people were treated was UNFAIR and it made them feel sad.
We used some actors and actresses to role play the story to allow the children to visually see what was happening. At each stage we explored our feelings and how we would feel in that situation. We then drew some fantastic portraits of Rosa Parks.
