Children at a Kensal Rise school held a “sensational” assembly to support a motto to ‘love, learn and laugh’.
Pupils and staff at the Manor School, in Chamberlayne Road, celebrated the end of Black History Month on November 1.
Children performed a play to show what a day would be like living without certain items that were invented by black people, such as the ironing board and dust pan.
