Pupils share insights into Windrush

Pupils in Year 6 at Ormsgill School shared their insights into the Windrush Generation at a special assembly.

They have been learning all about the positive things the Windrush pioneers brought with them to Britain between 1948 and 1971.

Alongside contributing to the workforce, the migrants enriched the cultural landscape of the UK bringing with them Caribbean culture, art, sports, traditions and customs which had a significant impact on society.

Class teacher Jessica Corless, who is also an assistant headteacher at Ormsgill School, said the pupils had also learned about the hardships people felt when they arrived in Britain.

“They were inspired to share the story with the rest of the school. The children spoke confidently and clearly telling the pioneers’ story, shared some artwork inspired by this topic and parents/carers came to watch. I was extremely proud of every single one of them.”
