Black History Month

In order to celebrate Black History Month, boys combined their efforts in Art and English to work on a project during which they produced an information board about Windrush. Their work was displayed in Tesco, Baldock and the boys were very excited to visit the store to see their efforts on display.

The boys learnt about the Caribbean citizens who left the islands on which they lived to come to England on the Empire Woodrush and settle here. They each picked an island which they researched and produced fact sheets for.  

“The reason I picked Jamaica was because my nan’s favourite music artist was from there. I enjoyed making the work for Tesco because it was interesting to find out about Jamaica and the place was very interesting. It was very enjoyable to see my work up in the biggest Tesco in England.”
