Black History Month is part of our History curriculum at Dean Field.
Within this our classes from Nursery – Year 6 focus and learn about one person each week of October that we were in school.
We have a range of activities produced including a Diversity dance from Nursery to a boxing focus on Muhammad Ali and tennis skills based on Venus Williams. Some activities linked more specifically to cross-curricular sessions such as poetry and writing.
Each person we learnt about we added to our classroom historical timeline. As we have half term during October we also set our homework tasks on Seesaw relating to Black History Month to raise the profile of this and encourage continued fun, discovery and learning at home too. We’ve had so much fun and will embed this each year into our History curriculum.
