Leeds West Indian Carnival

Teachers' notes page

These resources enable children to explore what the Leeds West Indian Carnival looks like, what it celebrates, and why it is significant to the local area of Chapeltown in Leeds as well as to the wider Leeds community and beyond.

It is presented as separate themes, many of which have ideas for classroom activities and discussion, together with Curriculum Links and Learning Objectives, see:

There is also a series of audio clips to listen to (courtesy of Sonic City) of interviews recorded at the Carnival in 2007.

The full gallery of images within these resources can be found here: www.mylearning.org/leeds-west-indian-carnival/images

Finally, there are links at the bottom of each page to other online resources related to Carnival themes, which can be used for further research or to complete the suggested activities.


With massive thanks to Susan Pitter and the Carnival organising committee, Artemis, Leodis, Leeds Libraries and West Yorkshire Archive Service.
