International Women's Day
As part of International Women’s Day on Monday 8th March, Class 3 looked at influential women both in history and in our world toady. We linked our work from ‘Hidden Figures’ and the women at NACA/NASA. The children used the book ‘Women in Science’ as a basis for writing their own biography pages on the women Mary Jackson, Dorothy Vaughan and Katherine Johnson.
The children also created portraits of a woman that they admired. These included the women mentioned along with others such as Florence Nightingale, The Queen, JK Rowling, Boudicca and sportswomen such as Nicola Adams.
