Hello! We are an enthusiastic group of learners in year 5! Miss Button is our teacher and we have two teaching assistants: Mrs Page and Mrs Grey. We are going to be learning how to be resilient and resourceful as move up through the Junior School.
She grew up in segregated America, where there were different equalities for black and white people. As a black girl, she had to go to seperate schools to white girls.
She was so clever that she skipped grades and ended up completing High School 4 years before everyone else in her year!
Year 5 have been amazed by her calculations to send Alan Sheperd, John Glen and Neil Armstrong into Space! The astronauts refused to launch until Katherine checked everything was ok! What a responsibility!
