Your Black History Month Teaching Resources

Here is a sneak peek at some of the topics and learning outcomes included.

We look at the importance of understanding our rich history to help inform how we treat one another and recognise behaviour such as discrimination.

We explore the concept of inequity and the slave trade. We seek to acknowledge and appreciate the challenges that Black Britons faced and still face today.

This assembly is about overcoming adversity and challenge. We celebrate acclaimed Black Britons who have persevered through adversity to reach great heights.

Democracy is the belief that everyone has a right to have their say on issues that affect them and to speak out against practices that they believe are wrong.

In this 2 part series, we learn that respecting others means that we recognize and appreciate the rights, beliefs and differences of other people. If we respect ourselves, we want others to respect us too.

In this 2 part series, we learn about mutual respect and kindness. We explore the culturally diverse population in the UK and the fact that we are all different and have different beliefs and ideas.

The pupils at our school are really enjoying the lifewise scheme. The scheme is very staff-friendly and easy to monitor. More staff are now teaching lifewise as a consequence and all the DfE statutory guidance (+more) is covered. The staff at lifewise are extremely professional. As it is a digital platform, lessons are constantly being up-dated and improved.

Lifewise is a fantastic tool to use. It is easy and clear to navigate and as well as in class we have used Lifewise during remote learning sessions, whilst in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend this 'wellbeing session' tool to any school. It is exceptional.

Lifewise was so helpful for my online ELSA sessions. The format gave the children the chance to express their emotions. They loved the quiz and enjoyed the conversation.
