For black history month, each class has learnt about a person and presented it to the rest of the school.
Today Year 1children stood up in front of the school and told them about Ruby Bridges.
A long time ago black children and white children couldn't go to the same school. In 1960, The United States Government said, 'Segregation is wrong'. Ruby Bridges was a very brave 6 year old that went to a white school despite having to be escorted to school by the police each day. She was instrumental in making it possible for black and white children to go to the same school.
The children all learnt their words by heart and they spoke in lovely loud voices. Well done Year 1!
