Back to Children's work

Black History Month

During Black History month in October, children in Year 4 researched the lives of STEM Scientists Guy Blueford and Mae Jemison, the first African American man and woman to travel into space. Using the information gathered they then wrote biographies in their English lessons. In addition, children created models of the rockets and shuttles used by the astronauts as part of their homework project. Moreover, the children focussed on the life of Michael Jackson and created Picasso-inspired portraits of the singer, as well as learning the dance steps to the song ‘Thriller’ which they then performed in front of the other children in Phase 3 during a celebratory assembly.
