I just wanted to share some of the fantastic work the classes have done for our Equalities Week. They looked at different stories such as ‘The Paper Bag Princess’ and ‘Happy in Our Skin’ and then had discussions about stereotyping (what toys do boys play with and what toys do girls play with?) and accepting differences. We alll decided that toys are for EVERYONE!
These issues also linked into Black History Month and so classes learnt about significant people who have made an impact on society, helping to make equal opportunities for everyone. People such as Dianne Abbott MP, author Malorie Blackman, Lilian Bader and Olaudah Equiano. There has been some amazing writing, debating and artistic creations! Well done everyone.
Take a look at the photos of our school display, showing work from each class.
