Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi! J
**Please just do what work you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all. I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **
Today’s activities are as follows:
Discover who Katherine Johnson was and her amazing life by reading these sources – making sure you jot down notes as you read:

Fantastically Great Women who Worked Wonders by Kate Pankhurst - Page 1(attached below)
NASA website: Who was Katherine Johnson? https://www.nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/k-4/stories/nasa-knows/who-was-katherine-johnson-k4
Based on what you have read, select one of the following two outcomes:
• Biography – Write a short biography about Katherine’s life. Remember to write your biography in chronological order (from Katherine’s birth up until her death), selecting the key dates and facts about her life.
• Comic strip – Design and create a comic strip about Katherine’s life. Make sure you plan out the story for your comic first – thinking about how many sections you want to split the story into, what captions you’ll have to add to the comic and the pictures you will draw.
