Black History Month Lessons During October

In History, we will be running a special Black History Month lesson starting in the first full week of October for Key Stage 3.

The focus of all three lessons will be around Mansa Musa and his Malian Kingdom, with slight different slants to fit with the curriculums KS3 historians are working through.

Year 7 - looking at Mansa Musa through the lens of "What does Mansa Musa reveal to us about medieval kingship?" - to fit with our curriculum focus right now on medieval kingship.

Year 8 - looking at Mansa Musa through the lens of "What does Mansa Musa reveal to us about Islam in Medieval Western Africa?" to link with our curriculum focus previously on Islamic Civilisations.

Year 9 - looking at "Why is Mansa Musa relevant to the current Black Lives Matters movement" to link with their current studies on Civil Rights in UK and USA. And to link in some Beyonce, linking it to Black is King.

BHM2We will also be promoting what students study in History through assemblies.

We will be creating a bibliography of books/posters for students to do further reading focused on what students are currently studying in History.

The Geography department will be posting some great resources around the school focused on Black geographers who have made significant contributions in the history of geography. 

We have also created a paper for KS3 on Black Germans, Black Tudors and Black contributions to Medicine to complement their GCSE studies.
