Black History Afternoon

An African mask workshop took place where children learnt the history of the masks and about the special wood that was used to carve them. The children painted African masks using a traditional technique using dots of paint. Children had the opportunity to look at examples of masks already painted and modelled their designs on these examples, some children were very creative and designed their own!  

There was also an African dance workshop where children listened to traditional African music and learnt dance moves. After practicing, children came together and put on a wonderful performance of their African dances.
