 During October, we celebrated Black History Month. This year our theme was Lambeth and the notable figures in Black History that have given our local area such a rich and diverse mix of cultures.

Each class studied a different topic on the overall theme, basing many Literacy, Art and History lessons around stories and biographies. From The Windrush, to the Brixton Uprisings via the legend of the runaway of Vauxhall Spring Gardens, no stone was left unturned on the quest to uncover the history of our local area.

 

The month culminated in a celebratory assembly, when each class performed or presented a video of their own version of 'The Lambeth Walk'. All of the pupils really enjoyed Black History Month and learned so much about their local environment.
