Black History Month Showcase

Earlier this week, we brought our Black History Month celebrations to a close with a wonderful showcase of the work children have done over the past month. This year, St Edmund's focused on black artists around the world. Children spent time investigating their work and the meaning behind the art and completed some artwork of their own in that artist's style. 

Pupils from each year group were selected to promote their stand and answer questions from their many visitors. Here are just a few quotes from our visitors.

"I really like Wangechi Mutu's work; it was so creative"

Year 3 pupil

"I loved Year 3's work. They were so creative and made brilliant sculptures from recycled materials." 

Year 4 pupil 

Below are a few photographs from our showcase. You can find more in our school gallery.

During the month of October, we were also very lucky to have our kitchen team serve us up a special meal inspired by African cultures. Children were able to tuck into Jollof rice and chicken, patties and some wonderful Mississippi chocolate mud pie. This was very popular, and the children can't wait to see it back on the menu. 

Thank you to Renata and the kitchen staff for producing such a lovely meal.
