Black History Month
Black History Month is the annual celebration and commemoration of moments in history, achievements and contributions that Black people have made.
At Hewens Primary School, we will be honouring the contributions made to society by people of Back heritage and their communities by taking part in various activities and competitions throughout the month. Key Stage 1 pupils will learn about a famous Black Briton and their achievements or contributions to British society. The suggested personalities include: Sir Trevor McDonald, Mary Seacole, Mo Farah, Lewis Hamilton, Claudia Jones, Benjamin Zephaniah, Lenny Henry. Key Stage 2 will be taught to understand the experiences and contributions of people from communities across the United Kingdom. They will watch short videos from BBC Teach each week: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/classclips-video/history-ks2-black-british-stories/z3w84xs.
On Wednesday 20th October, we will then host a special celebration assembly at 1:30pm in the Quad to commemorate Black History Month.
