Hampstead Gate children learn about sporting heroes

As part of learning for Black History Month, children from Hampstead Gate Day Nursery in Milton Keynes embarked on a journey of discovery to find out more about sporting heroes.

Through physical activities, co-research activities and inspiring stories, youngsters from the award-winning setting on Eelbrook Avenue learnt more about the remarkable achievements of inspirational athletes, from Usain Bolt and Serena Williams to Jesse Owens and Simone Biles, who have broken barriers, defied odds and paved the way for future generations.

As part of the learning experience, children were delighted to take part in their own sporting event in the garden outside, embarking on different races whilst practicing their balance, gross motor skills and co-ordination, before each receiving gold medals for their efforts.

Hampstead Gate Day Nursery Team Leader, Jordan Hall explained;

“We had a brilliant time learning all about legendary sportspeople for Black History Month, and we firmly believe that fostering this understanding from an early age will empower our children to celebrate their own unique talents, embrace diversity, and dream big.”

Black History Month is celebrated annually throughout October.
