The theme is relating our African & Caribbean heritage to the British Monarch. How we left our riches for a better life on a ‘Boat or Ship 🚢’ Windrush looking a yonder to worship the British Empire signified by the ‘Castle’ . This a learning through play. It’s an amazing project that will be run through to October looking at how all these connect what it means to everyone involved ✊🏾
