Diversity in our History curriculum
The great people who have influenced our History are studied in depth throughout school with regards to cultural diversity. For example, when Year 5 study Space, as well as studying Tim Peake, they will also learn about Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez, who was the first black person in space. When Year 2 study Christopher Colombus, they will learn to understand his negative impact on native tribes in America when he explored and how different cultures can impact upon each other.
A theme of the plight of racism and slavery develops throughout our History curriculum from Christopher Colombus, to Roman slavery, ending in Year 6 with the enslavement in concentration camps during World War 2.
