23 Oct Hidden Figures
Hidden figure in Black History.
On Thursday, Year 6 were learning about hidden figures in Black History. We focused on black women in science and their contributions. We learnt about three women in particular (Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan) who worked for NASA and were part of the team responsible for sending men to the moon. Not only did they face discrimination for the colour of their skin but also their gender.
We worked in groups to create posters about what we had learnt.
