UKS2 – Black History Month: The Abolition of Slavery

October is Black History Month! To help bring this important month into your classroom, we have produced a full month of resources for each phase.

This UKS2 resource features a week of fully-planned whole-class reading looking at slavery and its abolition. There is an extract from the moving novel Freedom 1783, a Newsround article called ‘International Day For the Abolition of the Slave Trade’ and an English Heritage article on five black abolitionists – Mary Prince, Ottobah Cugoano, Olaudah Equiano, Ukawsaw Gronniosaw and Louis Celeste Lecesne.

There is daily vocabulary work and retrieval practice, plus work on a range of KS2 reading comprehension skills based on the National Curriculum reading content domains.
