International Women's Day
“Friday 8th March was International Women’s Day and in year 6 we looked at inspiring women in our own lives. We thought about what makes someone inspiring in class discussion picking out famous writers, singers and family members. We then went on to produce our own pieces of writing on which women we find inspiring and why.”
