At St Mary’s we have been celebrating Black History Month throughout October. Each class has been learning about someone who was the first black person in their field in Britain. Here are some of the things they have been learning about:
Year 6 learnt about Diane Abbott, one of the first black British MPs, and held their own parliamentary debate about school uniform:
Year 3 learnt about the first black British bishop, Bishop Wilfred Wood, and made their own mitres and stoles:
Year 5 have learnt about James Peters, the first black British rugby player, who had an incredible life story!
