On Tuesday 22nd June we celebrate Windrush Day in school!
The children learnt the story of Windrush Day -
Windrush Day is a national celebration to commemorate the arrival of the Empire Windrush and its passengers at Tilbury Docks on June 22nd, 1948, following a month-long journey from the Caribbean.
It’s 1027 passengers and those that continued to migrate to the UK from the Caribbean between 1948-1973, became known as the Windrush Generation in recognition of the significance of that initial journey. The influence and contribution of the Windrush Generation and their descendants continue to shape the UK culturally and economically.
In class, the children did different activities and learnt the song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJ0ZTuFc-8E to celebrate Windrush Day!
