Although Black History month is marked every October, it is a huge part of our ongoing learning at Perryfields. In year 3 Emerald, we have learnt all about the inspirational Nelson Mandela. Children were shocked to find out what apartheid means and how unfairly people were treated in South Africa. The peaceful approach advocated by this great man teaches us all important lessons and I hope the children will channel this patience whenever things are not going as they would like. Life brings us many challenges and understanding there are many others who have faced far worse can help us when times get difficult.
