St Martin de Porres Class - Forget Me Not Workshop
Forget Me Not Day: Workshop Programme
The Positive Steps ‘Forget-Me-Not Day’ project helps to plug the gap that still exists within the national curriculum regarding The Great War’s Black British soldiers and the colonial regiments of Allied and Central Powers and will also explore the contributions of Black civilians, particularly Entertainers during WW1.
The Forget Me Not Workshop explored with Year 6 pupils, the resonances in the post war British Commonwealth migrant communities and enabled pupils to examine their own heritage and understand the interplay across cultures and will ultimately inform the creation of the ‘Forget-Me-Not Day’ Heritage Learning Pack, which will be available for all Islington schools. The pupils had a fantastic writing session, and their work will be shared at the Tate Britain. More details will follow for parents.
