Black History Month 2018: Amazing Grace

Year 5/6 have celebrated Black History month by investigating the song ‘Amazing Grace’ by John Newton. They found out that John Newton wrote the song in 1779, as he looked back on his life as a former slave trader. It tells of how he changed his ways and became an advocate for equal rights. The children found out that his song is now widely regarded as a symbol of solidarity and comfort when times are hard, and it has been played at many important events through history.
