St George’s Catholic Primary School was engaged in a range of activities to commemorate and celebrate ‘Windrush Day’.
A lot of learning has taken place throughout the school, with the children learning about the Windrush generation and the impact it has had on London.
We also took part in a joint collaborative project with some other schools in Harrow, celebrating an English-speaking Caribbean island. We learnt all about Grenada! You can see our part of the video below:
All year groups have been making flags of the Caribbean islands and some beautiful artwork for our ‘Windrush’ Display!
In addition, the Year 1 children learnt about the experiences of Windrush passengers and imagined the journey, from leaving the sunny Caribbean to arriving in a colder Britain. The children illustrated the different types of weather in the Caribbean and England in their Art books. Here is some of our work!
