Granny Came Here on the Empire Windrush Resources

This heart-warming and heartfelt debut picture book from multi-award-winning author, Patrice Lawrence, will help ensure that the struggles and achievements of the Windrush generation are never forgotten.

About the resources

This resource uses the book as a starting point to help introduce younger children to Black history, and themes of belonging and identity, loving family relationships, and showing empathy and kindness towards people from all backgrounds. There are suggested activities and discussion questions which can be used with a whole class or groups within a class, but can also be used to develop and extend further activities and ideas.

The activities in this resource are aimed at children between years 1 and 3, as the book is broadly suitable for this age group. However, activities and discussion questions could be adapted to use with older children and feed in to related learning through KS2.
