Black History Month
As part of Black History Month we have been learning about and celebrating African and Caribbean culture.
We learnt about the traditional folk tale ‘The Leopard’s Drum’ by Jessica Souhami. This tale comes from Ghana, West Africa. We found Africa on the world map and talked about how it is a big continent made of many countries. The children made and decorated their own ‘Leopard’s drums!’
We read the story ‘Caribbean Dream’ by Rachel Isadora. We found the Caribbean on the world map and its many islands. The children made their own oil pastel drawing of a Caribbean beach from the story.
In the Early Years, we learn about people and communities all year round as part of the area ‘Understanding the World’. If you have a story or object you would like to share with Reception, please let me know.
