BLACK HISTORY MONTH

This week we have completed activities as part of our learning linked to Black History Month.

We had an assembly to find out about the origins of Black History Month and then each year group focused on a figure to find out more about.

Year One learnt about Mae Jemison who is a black female astronaut - she bacame the first African-American women to travel in space. In 1992, she flew into space on the space shuttle Endeavour having been the first African-American woman to be accepted onto the NASA space training programme in 1987.

Mae Jemison

We created art work inspired by the accomplishments of Jemison and we also used our questioning skills to think about the things which we might like to ask her to find out more about her experiences in space.

We are planning to tweet Mae Jemison and are hopeful of a reply so...watch this space (no pun intended!) to see if she gets in touch!

In the mean time, take a look at our fabulous space pictures created using marbling techniques and a range of media.
