Last Monday, we launched the theme of ‘Aspirations’ for this year’s Black History Month. The children have been working hard in class to learn about the achievements of significant black figures in the field of science and medicine. After conducting historical enquiry to learn about the chosen individual, pupils were encouraged to write poems inspired by the person’s life story or to write about their own aspirations. At Chalkhill, we encourage all pupils to be confident writers. If there is a piece of writing that your child has produced that they are particularly proud of, please post it onto the Chalkhill Writer’s Blog at www.chalkhillwriters.com. Please encourage your child to read regularly to help develop vocabulary and understanding that will, in turn, improve their writing.
