Week beginning 22nd November

This week in Literacy we have been continuing to learn about Katherine Johnson, the mathematician who helped with the space race in America. 


We have done some research on her life and we are going to write it up as a biography of her life. Think about how these events occurred in chronological order as that is important in a biography - you wouldn't talk about her death before you mentioned all the things she achieved in her life. 


I have attached a copy of my biography on Mary Jackson so you can see how it is structured and set out. Then I would like you to write your own and edit it carefully. Focusing on your sentence starters - did you start most of your sentences in the same way?
