UNCRC Article 2 (Non-Discrimination) & 30 (Children from minority or indigenous groups).
October is Black History Month in the UK, an event that has been celebrated nationwide for more than 30 years. The month was originally founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to the UK over many generations. Now, Black History Month has expanded to include the history of not just African and Caribbean people but black people in general.

Class 1 have celebrated Black History Month by reading the story of Elmer and talking about how Elmer didn’t feel that he wanted to be the same as the other elephants. We talked about how differences should be celebrated and how each and every one of us are special and important!
