Year 3/4 Letters to Parliament
Our Year 3/4 pupils recently wrote to Abena Oppong-Asare MP (Member of Parliament for Erith and Thamesmead) about their concerns over plastic pollution.
Each child that sent a letter received a personalised response from Ms Oppong-Asare - please see below!
On Tuesday the 9th November, Councillor Lady Lola Oyewusi from Kent came to Jubilee school to talk to the children about the black soldiers that participated in World War 1 and 2. She spoke in-depth about the contributions of these soldiers who came from Africa, the Caribbean and other countries to support Britain.
She also showed us the black poppy that is a symbol of the fallen black soldiers and reminded us not to forget all that the soldiers have done for Britain.

Black History at Jubilee!
Black History Month was marked at Jubilee through a variety of different activities, culminating in some fabulous work, some of which we have displayed above. Sadly we could not invite visitors in as we have before, but we do have plans for the future after Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. At Jubilee we recognise the importance of diversity and firmly believe that this is a subject relevant throughout the curriculum all year round. Lessons have encouraged frank conversations about events in history along with discussions about equality, tolerance, empathy, resilience, fairness and so on. Some of these feature in our Five Jubilee Keys for Life. We have found that there were amazing cross-curricular links to be exploited in history, geography, literacy, SMSC and PSHE to name but a few. The children were fascinated to find that there was evidence of courtiers in the royal households dating back hundreds of years in the U.K. as well as interested to hear that one of the Roman Emperor's, Septimus was in fact black. We look forward to continued debate and enlightenment on this subject, as well as many others. Years Five and Six produced work of such a high standard it was entered into a Bexley black history competition. Obviously we think all our pupils are winners and are proud of them all!!
