For Black History Month the children learnt about the amazing Rosa Parks and how she changed the law in America to ensure all people were treated equally regardless of their colour. The children were astonished by how people of colour were treated differently and learnt how Rosa Parks not only just sat on the bus she was making a stand against racism.
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.
