Romans workshop

World War Two workshop

 

Year 5 and 6 took part in a workshop as part of their learning about World War Two. The workshop was a fantastic opportunity to bring History to life with the chance for role play and drama. The workshop started with the origins of the Second World War and how Great Britain had first sought an agreement with Hitler known as 'appeasement'. We learnt about how the war caused the role of women to change. We found out all about the WRNS (Women's Royal Navy Force), the WRAF (Women's Royal Air Force) and the WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) and how women were permitted to enter the military for the first time. Finally, we learnt about how the war came to an end. 

Black History Month 2021

 

This year, our focus for Black History Month was on the Windrush generation. We learnt that between 1948 and 1970, over half a million people from the Caribbean migrated to the UK to help Britain recover from the Second World War. As a school, we focused on the life of one very famous member of the Windrush Generation, Floella Benjamin, and her book, 'Coming to England': 

 

UKS2 enjoyed learning about Floella Benjamin's early life in Trinidad and how this all changed when she came to live in the UK. Using laptops to research more about her life, we wrote our own biographies. 

UKS2 also took part in a Black History workshop held by Telford and Wrekin's Multicultural Development Team and TAARC. We learnt all about the Windrush Generation and even had a chance to hold and smell some fruit from the Caribbean! 

We tweeted about our experiences of Black History Month and, rather excitingly, we were actually re-tweeted by Dame Floella Benjamin herself!
