Black History Month

We will be looking at influential people in black history. We will focus on inspirational quotes and achievements of both historic and modern day people, with a particular focus on people from the UK. We will celebrate those who have contributed to all aspects of modern Britain, including but not exclusive to, music, industry, sport, literature, innovation, science and medicine. 


We will share with children: 

  • Quote of the day – influential black figures throughout history
  • Person of the day – a focus on UK and modern figures making a difference to society


These are shared with you in the documents below. 



There are many resources that you could look at with your children to continue this work at home.
