Smart Snakes Find Freedom
Year 2 have absolutely loved Black History Week! They begun the week learning the whole school text, 'Follow The Drinking Gourd'. They then used drama to get to know their character Isaiah through hot seating and a 'conscience alley', then wrote a diary entry in role. They created maps to chart the route the slaves took on their journey to freedom, They all really enjoyed ageing and staining the paper so the maps looked really authentic! They also learnt about the amazing Rosa Parks and how Fairtrade helps farmers around the developing world. The class ended the week by watching a really moving film about slavery and reflecting on their learning this week!
