Mrs Hunt and Mrs Dalgas are the TAs in Year 5
In Year 5 we have studied the Windrush Generation for Black History Week. We learnt about the Caribbean islands and their connection to the UK through colonialism. Many people from the Caribbean fought for our country in the Second World War and we presented our research on some of these people to the rest of the class. Then, through videos and documents, we studied the voyage of the Empire Windrush. Using a list of passengers, we analysed the types of people who came to Britain on the ship in 1948 and considered their various reasons for making the journey. A variety of biographies helped us to piece together the passengers’ different expectations of their future life in Britain and what they found in reality. Finally, we considered the impact of the Windrush Generation on developing modern-day Britain as a multi-cultural country. We designed our own outfits for the Notting Hill Carnival.
