Black & Asian History Month

We know that British history is not just about what happened in this country in the past, our history is also the history of many other places around the world. This wider history is important to us because it has shaped the lives of so many of our families and our staff.  We think it is important to learn about and acknowledge how history and events are linked to our lives now.

This year at Earlham we explored this wider history through performance poetry and music.

Performance poetry

We celebrated poetry from around the world that helps us understand our past, and the impact of our linked histories on people's lives today. We were inspired by a visit from local East London writer Adisa the Verbalizer, who worked with pupils to create and perform original works, and who talked to us about his own history and how this inspires his writing.


Through our music lessons we celebrated music from different Black and Asian cultures. We explored music from different countries, and how it has influenced culture, beliefs, ideas, and even freedom movements. 

Pupils listened, and appraised music, composed their own pieces and developed incredible performances that were shared at a special assembly - watch this video montage of our performances!
