It’s not always easy to find Black History Month resources that help children learn about black British history.

Patrice Lawrence’s novel Diver’s Daughter offers a valuable opportunity to help pupils discover more about the diversity of the people who lived in England during the Tudor times.

By exploring the experiences of characters whose stories are not always told, and contrasting them with their own rights and freedoms, this Black History Month idea for schools enables KS2 children to develop empathy alongside their historical knowledge and understanding.

What they’ll learn

  • How to ask questions that are relevant to historical enquiry
  • How to make inferences from a text
  • How to compare ideas about life today with ideas about life in the past
  • Study British history beyond 1066

This download is perfect for teaching Black History Month. It includes:

  • Black History Month posters for a classroom display
  • Black History Month activities – full KS2 lesson plan

What is Black History Month?

Black History Month recognises the contributions that black people have made to the UK over many generations.

When is Black History Month in the UK?

October is Black History Month in the UK.

Why is Black History Month important?

There has been a lack of representation of black people in history books and school curriculums. Black History Month is a time to remember and celebrate the forgotten people who helped to shape the UK.

Why should schools teach about Black History Month?

Black History Month is a great way to celebrate and recognise the contribution of black people to British society. Schools play a significant role in teaching children about the importance of having respect and tolerance for all cultures.
