For the month of October, we explored important figures and moments in Black History, both around the world and here in Britain. We took this as a time to also reflect upon the contribution we make to our own communities, along with exploring and celebrating our richly diverse Barnfield family and its heritage. As we move into the future, we recognise it is important to reflect upon the past, embracing who we are as individuals and the power we have to make a change in this world. Classes explored these themes through assemblies, class discussions, research challenges, poetry and Zoom presentations from some of our parents. Our year 5 children, even created ‘Empire Windrush’ as their DT Moving Toy, to coincide with learning about the Windrush generation and their immense contribution to Britain.
