Art inspired by the inspirational Katherine Johnson!

As part of our Space topic and to celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday, Year 5 have been learning about the amazing Katherine Johnson. They learnt about her critical contribution to NASA during missions to the moon and Mercury back in the 1950s and 60s. We all decided that she was an absolute inspiration and were very impressed by her maths skills!

To create their art, Year 5 looked at abstract art by Peter Thorpe and used oil pastels to create some vibrant posters. capture3capture2capture5capture4Capture
