This week has been British Literary week and we have been studying the book ‘The Story of the Windrush’ by K.N Chimbiri. We have learnt so much about the importance of the Windrush generation and their participation in rebuilding England after WW2, to the modern nation we now live in today. The children were captivated by the hard work and resilience black Caribbean colonial people showed when facing discrimination against them.
We also looked at; what British values were promoted in the story, analysed ‘Windrush child’ poem by John Agard, discussed different peoples perspectives who travelled on the Windrush, designed posters advertising colonials to come to England and developed many literacy skills in order to write a letter in the point of view of a child who is living in England after travelling on the Windrush.
Please watch the video below showcasing some of our fantastic learning:
