As October was Black History Month, we spent some time learning about some influential people in history. We were learning about Nelson Mandela. Before half term, we discussed who he was and what exactly it was that made him so important and influential. The children enjoyed learning about his life and were fascinated to hear his story. Many children could not believe that he was sent to prison for fighting for everyone to have the same rights. This week, we have been creating a collage based on Nelson Mandela to be displayed in school. We have included lots of facts about him and a time line of his life.
