In English this week, we are going to be doing lots of learning about the life and work of Grace Darling, to discover why she was well-known as a heroine.
Today, we began by looking at a picture of Grace Darling and predicted why we thought she might be well-known. Following this, we watched a BBC Teach video which showed a dramatisation of Grace Darling’s life. As a class we discussed and retold the story and reflected on her act of bravery and how she might have felt as she rowed across the treacherous sea to the shipwreck.
Here is the youtube clip that we used, if you would like to access it at home:
Y1 used hot-seating and role-play to act out the story and we finished by using freeze frames to find out how Grace might have been feeling.
