'The Coming Home: Mary Seacole'
Miss Griffiths led a project with 10 children from Year 5 creating films for a video for Brent Museum and Archives and the National Portrait Gallery. Mary Seacole was buried in Kensal Green Catholic Cemetery when she died in 1881. The children used Brent Museum and Archives’ Houses from Brent’s Past loans box to explore artefacts and photos, to learn about Mary Seacole and to explore what ‘home’ and ‘cultural identity’ mean to them. They then shared their experiences on film. The video is part of an online exhibition. The film was created as part of the COMING HOME project which puts a spotlight on Mary Seacole and her connections to Brent. Due to current restrictions the portrait of Mary Seacole is unable to be on show at Brent Museum & Archives. COMING HOME is a major project which sees the National Portrait Gallery lend 50 portraits of iconic individuals to places across the UK with which they are most closely associated.

We are very grateful to them for helping to highlight Mary Seacole’s story and for sharing their experiences and artistic creations”.

Global Goals Day
On Monday 8th March, as part of our Think, Speak-Up, Take Action curriculum, the whole school took part in ‘Global Goals Day’ – a day dedicated to examining local, global and intercultural issues.
Each year group learned facts about the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and took part in activities relevant to their year group’s Global Goal.
Lively class discussions, drama and debates allowed children to develop their oracy skills and enabled them to ‘think’ about their responsibilities as global citizens. EYFS and KS1 created some amazing artwork while KS2 held class discussions inspired by a range of art, videos and case studies. Children finished the day feeling enthused knowing how they can make a difference both locally and globally.
Every class answered the question ‘What world do you want in 2030?’ Take a look at our school social media pages to see more of the activities from our Global Goals Day.
