Reception 'Notting Hill Carnival'

Reception have had the most exciting week learning about Black History Month!  The Notting Hill Carnival was started by Claudia Jones in 1959 to bring unity rather than the race riots.  The children have been working hard to create their own carnival by using tools to make feather headpieces, sequin masks, glittery threaded necklaces and paper chains to decorate the classroom.  The carnival took place on the yard with lots of music, the instruments we had made for homework and even more dancing!
