Black History Month

"For our black history week, the children took part in musical workshops and learnt famous Mandela quotes using body percussion. Children were thoroughly engaged throughout the workshop sessions and there was a real buzz in every class that took part. These sessions were the perfect way to learn about black history in an active and engaging way!'  Sarah Evans (Assistant Head at Benedict's Primary) October 2014
