Autumn Term 2020 Black History Month

Celebrating Black History Month at Canterbury Nursery School

Acknowledging and celebrating Black History Month as a special time of year is an appropriate way to approach the themes of African-Caribbean history, achievement and experience. At Nursery we will be offering opportunities to engage in relevant first-hand experiences can help children make connections between different lives, cultures and experiences and offer starting points for discussion around similarities and differences . It is important to note however that valuing and celebrating diversity is always an integral part of our everyday practice, not something that is just focussed on at certain times or dates. However, October can be a time to celebrate equalities and organise some extra special events.

We find that sharing books is a great way to open discussions about similarities and differences. These are just some of the books we will share over the coming month.
