Black Lives Matter
if you have been watching the news recently, you will know that protests have been taking place in America, and across the world, in response to the death of a Black man, George Floyd, at the hands of the police.
This incident further exposed the systemic racism that exists worldwide, and highlights that much more needs to be done by all of us to fight it. Recent events have brought to many people’s attention that it’s not enough to be passively non-racist; we have to be actively anti-racist. It is important to talk with our children about this.
We have some assemblies that you might want to watch with your children to help start some of these conversations and a very helpful guide to parents that you can access HERE.
EYFS/KS1 assembly (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 & 2) - We are all different
KS2 assembly (Year 3, 4, 5 & 6) - Racial discrimination
Whole school assembly - Representation
There are some fantastic books for all ages available in the Black Virtual Library. Please click on the picture below to access it.
