Black History Month
Lesson: Understanding the World
Class: Reception Year: 2020 - 2021
Acknowledging and celebrating Black History Month as a special time of year is an appropriate way to approach the themes of African-Caribbean history, achievement and experience with young children. Offering opportunities to engage in relevant first-hand experiences can help children make connections between different lives, cultures and experiences and offer starting points for discussion around similarities and differences.
This week we have been making African inspired necklaces and carrot juice, which is a typical drink of many of the Caribbean islands, usually made on a Sunday to have with a special Sunday dinner.
