I Am Somebody

As part of Black History Month Team Reception have been thinking about similarities and differences between us all. Everyone likes different things and comes from different places, but we know that we can all be friends.

Team Reception found it hard to believe that there are some grown-ups who aren’t nice to each other; We explained that some people didn’t like other people because of what they looked like, but the children couldn’t understand why people would be “rude” and “mean.”

We watched a video of the poem I Am Somebody and thought about how everyone is important, then we thought of words to describe ourselves in our own poems. When everyone had written their poem we combined them to make this video. We hope you enjoy it.
