On Thursday morning, Key Stage Two enjoyed an assembly about Black inventors and scientists from Tony Warner at ‘Black History Walks’. They learned about people like scientist Margaret Ebunoluwa Aderin-Pocock and her work helping to make satellites. They also learned about Bernice Dapaah, an inventor from Ghana, who created a bike made from bamboo. The children enjoyed hearing how the scientists and inventors have helped add to things we use every day, like computers.
Year Five, enjoyed a workshop about the hidden Black history in London and how Black people have influenced the U.K, since the Roman times. They learned about people like John Blanke, who was a trumpeter during the early Tudor period. The children were really engaged in the topic and made amazing contributions.
