#Black Lives Matter
As you are probably aware, the Black Lives Matter movement is incredibly important at the moment and we are always looking for ways in which to teach our children about equality and diversity. This week, the home learning grid includes a variety of age-appropriate activities, videos and read aloud stories which will allow them to explore what is happening in the world and research the different political movements over the years that have pushed for equality and civil rights. It would be lovely to see all the different work that they have produced on it at the end of the week!
Attached below is a short powerpoint that we will be using in school this week, for you to share with your child so that they understand what racism is and why people are protesting at the moment. There is also a powerpoint on Martin Luther King which they can use for their research page. We understand that this can be a difficult topic to speak to your young children about, however it is vital they learn about what racism is, how to oppose and challenge it and about the struggles and inequality that black people face because of the colour of their skin.
