Celebrating the Windrush Pioneers!

Year 6 finished their Windrush history topic with a celebration of Caribbean culture! 

Our history vision is:

Be inspired. 

Be academic. 

Be reasoned.

This term, Year 6 have been studying the Windrush generation in history. We have learnt about the reasons Caribbean people moved to Britain after 1948, the life they were promised by the British government and the realities of racism and prejudice they faced living here. We also looked at some key people who were part of the Windrush generation, such as Sam King and Norma Best (who Y6 is named after!). We ended the topic by being reasoned and summing up how the Windrush pioneers enriched British culture and how they changed the country for the better. Have a look at some of our work on this in the photos below. 

Being inspired by the Windrush pioneers, and to celebrate Caribbean culture, we spent some time this week sampling jerk wings, plantain chips and ginger loaf whilst listening to some calypso music!
