Black History Month 2016

As Black History Month enters it’s 29th year of celebrations in the UK, Bigfoot are excited to help schools celebrate this annual occasion with workshops and assemblies which help children to learn about  African and Caribbean culture, traditions and achievements.

Bigfoot offer a wide range of Black History Month programmes from passengers stories and their experiences aboard the Empire Windrush which travelled from the Caribbean to Tilbury in 1948; to  an energetic assembly and workshop which brings the spirit of Notting Hill Carnival to life and explores great heroic figures.

Year on year we love to celebrate with our Bigfoot schools and find that both students and teachers enjoy celebrating with us too! Our facilitators always ensure  Bigfoot schools are left inspired and curious to learn and explore more after their visit.

“Thank you so much. It was a great way to start our multi-cultural week. The children were signing and dancing out of assembly and into their classrooms – just wonderful to be part of.” Haimo Primary School

“The assembly really set the scene for the children and they remembered all the information later during the workshop.” Orleans Primary School

“An exciting and engaging look at the importance of black history.” Townsend Primary School
