To start off our new school year, we have been researching key historical female figures. Year 4 have been focussing on Clare Balding, who some of you may recognise from her award winning broadcasting from the London 2012 Olympics. We have discovered that she is a champion female jockey and was the first woman to win the Derby. Since retiring from her sport, Clare has written 5 children's books and has won an award for them. We have been reading "The Racehorse who disappeared" during our class reader time.
