Hello DPA Parents and Carers,
As you know, we have celebrated Black History Month in school this month through our assemblies and some year groups have even begun to look at the amazing things we can learn from Black History.
However, at DPA, the learning journey into Black History does not start and end with Black History Month. Throughout the year, we continuously revist Black History in relation to our inquiry topics across all year groups.
The children also explore different aspects of Black History through reading lessons with both fictional and non-fictional books, which we have access to through online resources and in our libraries.
As well as this, our new timelines, which we have developed across both sites, feature events from Black History that children are able to see and discuss all year round at the academy.
Through focusing on different aspects of Black History all year round in our curriculum, we aim to encourage the children to be principled, open-minded, caring and internationally-minded citizens.
The children also investigate the legacy that Black History has left on the world in the past and in the present day and recognise how this legacy has changed the world.
