This week Team CH have been celebrating the life of Rosa Parks. They recognised Rosa Parks as a significant person from history and revisited her story of how she helped change the rules, and the lives of so many people.
Prior to introducing Rosa Parks, we introduced the story 'Tusk Tusk' Written by David McKee - Once elephants came in two colours: black or white. They loved all other creatures - but each set wanted to get rid of the elephants that were not the same as them. Peace-loving individuals ran and hid in the deepest jungle, and battle commenced. The war-mongers all succeeded. For a long time, it seemed that there were no elephants in the world at all, not of any colour. But then the descendants of the peace-loving ones emerged from the jungle, and by now they were all grey.
This lead into a conversation about equality. Next, they introduced Rosa Parks and spend time talking about who Rosa Parks was, why she is a significant person and the changes that happened thanks to people like her.
Finally, the children wrote down some information about Rosa Parks and discussed the key vocabulary: equal, justice, segregation and significant.
