Zaeeda-WLJ-# Week 2 Day 4 (Taking Action)

Week 2 Day 4: Taking Action
Today we are going to be learning about people who did some amazing things all to make prove a point. This was because they had a dream and believed that they could achieve their dream, and change things for the better!

Activity 1: A Long Walk To Freedom
Nelson Mandela is an civil rights leader and an activist. He was born and raised in south-Africa. South Africa had a political system called Apartheid, for over 40 years from 1948-1991. This meant that they had different rules and customs, South-Africa had different rules for people with lighter skin.

Nelson Mandela didn't feel to well about this, and thinks that everybody should be treated equally. Fortunately, Nelson Mandela became president and put an end to Apartheid. He changed the political system for the better, but this wasn't before he went through some hard times. Mandela spent 27 years in jail before this.



Mandela 18 years in Robben Island Prison. As you'd expect life was tough, but he got through it. Mandela spent his days breaking rocks into gravel, he was forced to work in the quarry all day long. At night he would study hard, learning to become a lawyer. He was allowed to have 1 visitor and a letter every 6 months. Life was hard!

This is my letter,  I did have some trouble as I have no idea what jail is like. I have never even seen a jail in real life. So this did take some time and a really good
imagination.

That brings us to an end of another day. Only a couple more days left in these holidays. I can't wait for school to start up again. There were so many things we haven't gotten around to doing so I bet that this term is going to be one rollercoaster of a ride. And I'm looking forward to it!
