Class 4 English
Our English work over the next few weeks will be based on 'Hidden Figures: The True Story of Four Black Women and the Space Race' by Margot Lee Shetterly.
As a class, we will be reading the history of the four women who helped put the first men into space: Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden. We will explore the discrimination faced during the 1940s in America and use what we learn within our writing.
Our writing genre focus is a diary entry. The children will be using what they learn from Hidden Figures to write a diary entry as one of the four women at their own chosen point within the book.
