During October, we celebrated Black History Month in Reception.
Over the month, we listened to traditional African stories like Anancy and Mr Dry Bone and Mufasa's Beautiful Daughters.
However, what we loved most was listening to and joining in with the African, Carribean and Latin music we explored. During carpet times, we listened to Bob Marley's Three Little Birds and joined in with the chorus. We did lots of dancing and watched some videos of traditional West African dancing to get some ideas of how we could move. We even played a djembe drum!
We made an art piece inspired by the music we listened to. We painted a saxophone and a djembe drum. We each handprinted our skin colour too, talking about how we are different and how our skin colour makes us special. We used red, green, black and yellow too, as you can find these colours in the flags of countries accros Africa.
