Year 5 have been studying the book, "Hidden Figures" about the incredible African- American women who worked at NASA, in the 1950s and 60,s and the racism they came up against. This led us to discuss the Civil Rights Movement and how sometimes it is important to stand up for what you believe in and exercise your rights of peaceful, non-violent protest. The children began to think about issues that are current in today's world and changes they would like to see. They then made placards and banners and we had our own demonstration making sure that our thoughts were heard.
