Black History Week

This week we have focussed on the story of Handa’s surprise. Handa is a young girl from Kenya who decides to take 7 delicious fruits to her friends village. Unknown to Handa, her basket is emptied by hungry animals and is only filled again when she walks under a shaking tangerine tree.

Handa’s Surprise has taken over our classroom this week, please see pictures below.

We were also very lucky this week when Caitlyn brought in a beautiful book called ‘Young, Gifted & Black’ about prominent figures in history to share with the class. We read about Leeds boxer Nicola Adams, musician Stevie Wonder and Arctic explorer Matthew Henson.
