BOOKS

Hello! I hope everybody is staying safe in these times and settled back into school.

As it is Black History Month, I am recommending some books that you (parents/carers) and your children can read for the rest of the academic year. I myself have personally read these books and cannot recommend enough!

The Vine Event

On Saturday the 19th of October 2019, we went to the Vine Community Centre to celebrate Black History Month and the Flag Tapestry we made. The kids and staff spoke about the flags that were painted as well as celebrating the Windrush generation, and the greatness of Black History.

It was a great event and we have pictures below;

Celebrate your heritage and culture not just for Black History Month but Every Month!
