This week our pupils celebrated International Women's Day by choosing inspirational women to research and study in their year groups.
Our Reception children learned about the work of the conservationist and campaigner Jane Goodall. They watched an interview with her and found out that Jane knew that she wanted to be a scientist when she was a child. Our children then used some of her skills in their own science work before exploring jobs that they may like to have when they grow up.
Year 1 looked at climate change activist, Greta Thunberg, as Year 2 studied the efforts from Grace Darling. Year 3 learned about Yayoi Kusama, a Japanese artist, before writing pieces about how they would perceive the world through her eyes.
Putting pen to paper, our Year 4 children wrote biographies about Rosa Parks after researching her life. Our Year 5 group travelled even further back in history to look at Hatsheput from ancient Egypt to link to their current topic on pharaohs.
Our Year 6 class discussed the suffragette movement and looked at the life of Emmeline Pankhurst. The children then created their own suffragette themed speeches convincing people to join the campaign for women's right to vote and persuading men to let women vote.
