Cry Freedom!

This is a theme based around the history of slavery. We start by learning what slavery is, looking at some of the reasons behind it and examples of it, before moving on to ­find out about slavery throughout history and in different countries. Then, we learn about key people who were instrumental in making slavery illegal, before investigating modern day slavery and what we can do to stand against it, like the courageous abolitionists of the past.  We will be learning about the incredible story of Henry 'Box' Brown, who escaped as a slave by mailing himself to freedom in a box.  We will also be finding out about the lives of Sojourner Truth and William Wilberforce, who both helped to abolish slavery.  Finally, we will explore the hidden background to Sir Mo Farah and how slavery still affects people to this day.
