Our celebration of International Women’s Day started with Year 3/4’s Class Assembly. They created the assembly themselves, incorporating a wide range of multimedia experiences for the audience. They produced a quiz, made a slideshow and choreographed their own dance at the end too. They informed the audience all about current female role models, as well as those women and girls have inspired people throughout history.
With all the female staff dressed as iconic women, the children in all classes then spent the morning producing writing about significant women in their lives. As well as having a guest lecturer come in from the local university, all children then worked in their house teams to produce a presentation about a famous female.
Two houses chose their own house representative – Rosalind Franklin and Eliot George, whilst we all learned interesting facts about Amelia Earheart and her famous disappearance over the Pacific Ocean.
