Yr1: Black History Beginnings

Today, as part of a whole school focus, we started our learning about Black History. We have begun to look at the Underground Railways, which are seen as safety points along a journey to freedom, through the true story of a man called Henry Brown.

The story that we are focusing on is called ‘Henry’s Freedom Box’

Today we have sequenced Henry’s story and talked about how he felt at different points of his journey. We then imagined what it would feel like if we were in his story.
