7A pupils wore red today to mark the Show Racism the Red Card day.
On Wednesday, Mrs Fisher worked with small groups as part of My Community to talk about why people have different coloured skin. We looked at a new word “melanin” and talked about how it is like a curtain that protects our skin from the getting damaged by the Sun. We took part in an activity where we pretended that hot chocolate powder was the melanin in our skin and we mixed it with milk to show that people with darker skin have more melanin in their skin, which gives it a darker appearance. 7A were very sensible throughout this activity and asked relevant and well thought questions too.
Super work 7A!
