We celebrated Black History Month in our school. It as a special time of year to learn about African-Caribbean history.
We offered opportunities for the children to make connections between different lives and cultures, the similarities and differences and the importance of accepting everyone.
Valuing and celebrating diversity is an integral part of our everyday practice in the Early Years.
Books and stories are a very powerful way of representing the world for young children, allowing them to explore different aspects of people’s lives.
We read “Caribbean Dream” and “The Leopards Drum”
The children were inspired from these books and created some fantastic arts and crafts.
