Black History Month


In Year One, we have been learning about the life of Maya Angelou - what an inspirational woman she is! Maya Angelou taught us that we should "be a rainbow in someone's cloud." We explored what this meant and how we could be the calm and peace when someone is upset, unhappy or stressed. Maya Angelou also taught us that we can be anything we want to be. The children thought about what careers they wanted to do - the possibility is endless! We have aspiring teachers, astronauts, chefs..
