Black History Month - October 2018

Lesson: History

Class: Year 4J Year: 2018 - 2019

For Black History Month Day, 4J looked at two people who have contributed a lot to the world which we live in. Firstly, we looked at Jesse Owens who was a famous American Olympian. He overcame racial prejudice both at home and abroad during the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Jesse Owens proved influential wrong by winning an incredible 4 gold medals including 3 world records in the space of 45 minutes. 4J then researched Sir Trevor McDonald's life and produced some super questions in his style. Finally, 4J acted out an interview between Sir Trevor and Jesse asking and answering questions in their styles.
