Year 3 enjoyed reading ‘Henry’s Freedom Box’ which tells the story of 19th century Virginia slave Henry Brown, who mailed himself to friends in Philadelphia where he escaped to freedom. We were amazed by the powerful illustrations throughout the book.
Over the half term holidays, Year 3 children created a 'Freedom Box' similar to Henry's.
This term, Year 3 read the story, 'Sisters and Champions.' We enjoyed empathising with the characters and learning about Venus and Serena Williams. We enjoyed learning about their success with competitive sport and how they reached that level of competition with sheer determination and resilience. We created Newspaper reports of their first match at Wimbledon on 6th July 2002.
