- William Wilburforce
- Abraham Lincoln

Connected Learning at Home:
Imagine you are the child of a slave owner, living on a plantation in the West Indies. Although you know your plantation couldn’t run without slave labour, you can see the way the slaves are treated and see it is unfair. You believe slavery should be abolished.
Create an Abolish Slavery poster that could be displayed around the West Indies to try to persuade other people to abolish slavery.
This week, our learning has progressed to thinking about 'forced migration' through History.
We are now focussing on the times of slavery when huge groups of Africans were forced to move away from their homelands and to work as slaves.
Their freedom was taken; their identity stolen.
Our freeze frames helped us learn about how this may have felt...
Why not check out the slavery links to discover more about these times?
