October is Black History Month. This national celebration aims to promote and celebrate Black contributions to British society, and to foster an understanding of Black history in general.
The theme for Black History Month 2023 is ‘Celebrating Our Sisters’.
‘Celebrating Our Sisters’ is about honouring the amazing achievements of Black and Mixed Heritage women.
At Rowan Tree the children and staff have celebrated black history month in a variety of ways including: Listening to music by black musicians and playing musical instruments along to different types of music, dancing to music, celebrating each others differences through art and story and some cookery.
