Black History Month in Year 4

During October, the children in Year 4 read the story “Journey to Jo’Burg” in English and completed various tasks linked to the events in the text. The children wrote some fantastic cinquain poems based on the story.

Further to this, they also researched the mathematician Katherine Johnson and discovered how she was a very important black woman who worked for NASA. The children each created a fact file about Katherine Johnson’s life and then in groups discussed why she would have been “Proud To Be”. In their groups, the children shared their posters about why Katherine was “Proud To Be” with the class.
