4 Blue – The Story of the Windrush

This week in 4 Blue we have been learning all about the Story of the Windrush by K.Chimbiri.

We learnt that after WWII the Empire Windrush brought people to England (the Mother Country) from the Caribbean.

We explored what life was like for these people and how this generation has helped to shape the country we live in today. They suffered a lot of hardships. 

We explored our own British Values as well as looking at recent news about this – The Windrush Scandal and what hardships these people have faced recently. We used our knowledge of British Values to put across our own viewpoints based on what we thought.

Some of us completed a SOLE project, while others explored the issue in class with Miss Redhead. 

Here is what we found:
