During September we had Cultural History weeks based on the theme Icons and Inventors where each class focused in on an iconic person and a scientist/inventor. Each class looked at inspirational role models from a range of different cultures to help us develop an understanding of how influential people of the past have had an impact on our lives.
Iconic people that were covered included Nelson Mandela, George Carruthers, Stevie Wonder, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Michelle Obama and Ella Fitzgerald. Children in the EarlyYears focused on who inspires them in their families.
Inventors and Scientists included Debbye Turner, Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton, Frederic Banting, Mary Jackson and Lonnie Johnson.
As part of our learning we had different workshops. Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 learnt a lot about Black History and Years 1 and 2 learnt lots of Stories from Africa.
At the end of the 3 weeks we came together with St Joachim’s to share our performance poetry pieces about linked to our learning.
