Listen up to page 8 of our class book Counting on Katherine.  

Can you use the things we found out about our character Katherine yesterday to write a character description?

What did we find out?

She loved to count.
She was very bright.
She skipped three years of school.
She loved to imagine what was in space.
She had a brother
She wasn’t allowed to go to the local high school.

Model how to turn some of the facts into sentences, linking phrases with conjunctions focus on ‘and’.  Also emphasise the use of expanded noun phrases and the use of the past tense.
e.g.

Katherine Johnson skipped three years of school because she was so bright. Her knowledge and interest in the universe fired her imagination so she wanted to learn as much as possible. She burned with fury when she discovered she couldn’t go to high school.

Continue the description of Katherine. Ensure that conjunctions and the past tense are used.
