Welcome back to the Summer Term!


This half term is another busy one!

English Writing – We will be studying the book ‘Hidden Figures’ by Margot Lee Shetterley. Hidden Figures explores the biographies of three African American women who worked as "computers" to solve problems for engineers and others at NASA.  For the first years of their careers, the workplace was segregated and women were kept in the background as human computers.


The children will have the opportunity to:  write a persuasive letter, order key events chronologically and identify relevant and key information through research.

We will also be exploring Imagery – simile, metaphor, personification, through poetry.
