Curie Class

We are called Curie Class. We are named after Marie Curie who was a famous Scientist. She won two Nobel Prizes! She had a healthy brain because she discovered important things and helped to develop X rays. I feel happy to be in Curie Class, because Marie Curie helped lots of people.

Aesop Class

Aesop was an ancient Greek storyteller most famous for his fables, such as The Hare and the Tortoise, The Boy who cried Wolf or The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs. Aesop's Fables include talking animals and plants with human characteristics and usually have a strong moral message at the core. His stories have been taught to children to educate them in ethical and moral behaviour, as well as to help impart important life lessons. Many of Aesop’s Fables have sparked popular sayings that are used today, such as “slow and steady wins the race”, or “if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again”. Aesop’s fables spread widely through oral retelling and are known to us due to their mentioning by ancient Greek philosophers and historians. Tales credited to Aesop have been gathered across the centuries in a variety of languages, such as Greek and Latin.

Hawking Class

Stephen William Hawking was a world famous cosmologist and physicist who published ground breaking research. As a cosmologist he studied what makes up our universe, including planets, black holes and galaxies. He was born in 1942 and died in 2018 aged 76. For most of his adult life, he had early-onset MND (Motor-Neurone Disease). This caused lots of mobility issues and made it hard for him to speak. Because of this he used a wheelchair to move around and a computer to speak. His 1988 book A Brief History of Time was a bestseller. It discussed the origins of the universe and has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. Hawking is best known for his discovery that black holes emit radiation which can be detected by special instruments. His discovery has made the detailed study of black holes possible.

However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.” – Stephen Hawking.
