RAP Black History Celebration

Pupils and staff have enjoyed several weeks of exploring Black history. Pupils learned about specific aspects of Black history within all of their subject lessons :

Maths – Black female Nasa mathematicians Katherine Johnson,Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson and pupils explored the origins of maths

English – Ghost boys book review

Science – Black scientists and inventors

Art -paper weaving inspired by Kente textiles and portraiture inspired by Kahinde Wiley

PSHE  – Overcoming Obstacles – mentoring from the Black Training and Enterprise Group podcast

Food Technology – Recipes from Africa and the Caribbean

Geography – Globalisation, migration and population – Ghana and Brazil

Computing – Black computer scientists

History – African Empires

We then held a whole school Black History Celebration -with an exhibition of pupils work, a feast of pupil and staff cooked dishes and a Black history quiz.

Our RAP chefs cooked an amazing range of dishes  – jerk chicken, rice and peas, salt fish fritters, macaroni cheese, coleslaw, carrot cake, banana bread, lemon and lime cake cake and banana fritters. Staff made delicious contributions cooking jollof rice, prawn bouillion, stewed chicken, vegetable curry and akara.

It was a wonderful afternoon.
