History detectives

Mercury have enjoyed gathering information about the lives of the Windrush generation, after they moved to the UK. We examined different sources then decided where they had come from and what they taught us. We were quite shocked by some of the content, and the abuse which these people suffered due to ignorance and prejudice. We also learnt about the childhood of Floella Benjamin while reading our class text, and how she learnt to overcome these atrocities to succeed in life.
