As part of Black History month, Year 4 have been learning about Jesse Owens.  The children learnt how Jesse was one of the greatest athletes in the history of Olympic sports.  The 1936 Olympics were held in Berlin, Germany during the time when Adolf Hitler had power.  He expected the Germans to dominate however; Jesse Owens had his own chapter to write in history.  Jesse won four gold medals. 

For our artwork, we divided a portrait of Jesse into 24 sections and each child had a section to complete.  We then put all the pieces back together to make our final piece.  We were really impressed with the results.
