On Friday, we were introduced to our new text in English – Hidden Figures. It all started when we walked into the classroom. There was a sign that showed that white toilets were in one direction, and coloured toilets in the opposite direction. We were all extremely confused, but it was there because the story we are basing our writing on is about 4 black ladies who worked for NASA in the 1960s, and their struggles with racial and gender discrimination. Today, we are going to read the rest of the story – we can’t wait. We’re also going to be shown the film at the end of term.
In D&T, we are going to begin building our space rovers. A space rover is a vehicle that is sent to space to collect data and take photographs. So far, we have researched space rovers and planned our design. The design brief told us that our rover will be powered by a balloon, and that the most effective will be the one that moves with ease and over a distance.
