Victor Richards and Nairobi Thompson

Test your knowledge about the Windrush era with the quiz; bring images of Caribbean people arriving in England on MV Empire Windrush to life with the vibrant colours they would have been wearing; trace these images and unleash your imagination as you recreate them; write a short catchy acrostic poem – don’t worry there are instructions to help you. Have fun in the kitchen making this popular Caribbean treat and remember to take some pictures before they are devoured; record the memories of these activities as you start your very own “Taste of The Windrush Era” scrapbook.
