Black History Month

The Year 3 pupils started off Black History Month with a fantastic African Drumming Workshop. We then learnt about a Reading-born artist named Merissa Hylton. She creates bright, bold pieces. We were inspired by some of her pieces based on the Adinkra symbols of West Africa. We each chose an Adinkra symbol and then painted it. We have also enjoyed reading books by black authors and those that have featured characters of colour.

The Year 3 pupils have been learning about Hinduism in R.E. We celebrated Diwali by listening to the story of Rama & Sita, baking a traditional savoury snack called nampakpara and enjoyed seeing beautiful rangoli patterns. 

As part of our Romans topic, the Year 3 pupils visited the ancient city of Calleva Atrebatum (in what we now know as Silchester). We walked along the old city walls, saw the ruins of the amphitheatre, played some Roman games and reenacted a battle scene.
