Key assemblies at East Borough
We would like to offer pupils another opportunity to share, view and reflect upon our key assemblies.
23/10/20 Black History Month
In PSHE, children have learnt about a key black historical figure from British/American history. Your child will have learnt about one of the following people:
Florence Beatrice Price was an African-American classical composer, pianist, organist and music teacher. Price is noted as the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra.
Pablo Fanque was a British equestrian performer and circus proprietor, the first recorded non-white British circus owner in Britain. His circus was popular in Victorian Britain for 30 years in a period that is regarded as the golden age of the circs.
John Blanke (1501–1511) was a successful black musician in London in the early 16th century. He probably came to England as one of the African attendants
of Katherine of Aragon in 1501. He is one of the earliest recorded black people in England after the Roman period.
The children have really enjoyed learning about Black British history. If you would like to find out more information then please follow the links below:
