5 Red’s Literary Figures Week

This week the children have been studying the book “Coming to England” by Floella Benjamin.  They explored the emotions within the book and worked on their comprehension skills.
Then the children worked on their independent research skills by researching the history of Trinidad and the Windrush generation.
After this they brought their knowledge together to produce a play script. We chose a few scripts from the class to act out and record. You can see the results below.

Challenges:

Bronze: What is the Windrush generation?

Silver: What problems did Floella and the Windrush generation face when they got to Britian?

Gold: Find a different first person recount of what it was like for the Windrush generation. Analyse it, what was it like for them, did they like it in the UK, would it be different now?

    They didn’t have any problems with speaking English because they learnt that language in Trinidad because they thought it was the most spoke language, but they did get bullied for their skin colour.
