Year 5 - History: Windrush and Hackney

What is the link between Hackney and the Windrush generation? Today, we investigated this by looking at images and maps of bombs sites in Hackney. We also reminded ourselves of the experiences of Windrush generation after they arrived in the UK by watching some videos. Finally, we learnt about the Scandal, which was when new immigration laws affected many people who came to the UK from the Windrush generation. As a group activity, we created speeches, poems, songs and posters in support of the hardworking Windrush generation as if we were at the protests.
