BLACK HISTORY MONTH OCTOBER 2021

We will be posting what classes across the school have been working on this Black History month.

P1 are learning about Alma Thomas. They have been inspired by her artistic techniques to create their very own masterpieces. Did you know Obama had her art work displayed in the Whitehouse?

P3 have been reading Bold Women in Black History and learning all about inspiring politicians, artists, mathematicians, singers and strong ladies who made their mark on the world! We look forward to dipping into their interesting lives throughout the year in connection to topics and other areas of the curriculum.

Have a look at what P3C have been up to –

P3C are enjoying Benjamin Zephaniah poems this month from his book ‘Talking Turkeys’. We analysed the poem ‘Friends’ and created our own animal friendship group. Which animals would you have round for a play date? 

We will be exploring black history, heritage, culture and achievements with our classes at Bruntsfield Primary School this October. Info for parents below.
