We have had another lovely half term together learning about famous women from the past and present. We started by learning about authors including Julia Donaldson and J K Rowling. We then learnt about illustrators and drew these dragons independently for one of Julia Donaldson's books called Room on the Broom. Below you will be able to see some of these illustrations as well as some of the book reviews we completed in ICT.
We then learnt about Queen Elizabeth I and collected different information from a range of sources, including videos, newspapers, timelines and fact files. We wrote our own fact files about Queen Elizabeth and included facts such as:
- Almost 500 years ago, a princess called Elizabeth became Queen of England.
- People were worried because it was unusual for a woman to rule.
- Women were seen as weak and not as clever as men but Queen Elizabeth I proved them wrong!
Later in the half term, we learnt about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and sorted some facts about them into a Venn diagram. We found some similarities such as they are both nurses and also some differences such as Florence Nightingale was wealthy and Mary Seacole was poor.
