C of E Primary School

Celebrating Our Differences (Black History Month) 2022

We read the story of 'Elmer' the elephant who is created of different colours and teaches the children that it is ok to be different and that we should always accept and value everybody.


We realised that in our classroom we have lots of differences:

  • Our hair colour
  • How long our hair is
  • Our eye colour
  • Our skin colour
  • Gender
  • What we like to play with
  • What we like to eat
  • How we like to dress (when not in school uniform)
  • What we watch on TV
  • Our families


We learnt that despite these differences we always treat everybody with

Kindness and Respect!
