English

We are starting a new topic in English this week – biographies.

What is a biography? A biography is writing about someone’s life story, written in the third person.

Your job is to pick any famous person, past or present, and find out as much as you can about that person. Use the boxes below to help you! Or if you prefer you may choose to find out more about a member of your own family.

INTRODUCTION
Who is your biography about?                      
THINGS THEY ARE BEST KNOWN FOR
Facts and stories about their main successes
EARLY LIFE
Interesting facts about their childhood.                      
FAMILY LIFE/EXTRA INTERESTS
Did they marry? Have children? Have any hobbies?  
EARLY CAREER
Facts and stories about their early jobs/successes.                        
CONCLUSION
Final statements about their future or life highlights.

Mathematics

This week I would like you all to have a go at increasing your speed and accuracy with your 8 times tables. I have set a battle on TT Rockstars, but you may wish to use the website below first as it does not have any speed element to it.

I have also added the Math’s Starters for this week below, which again have links to the 8 times tables as well as some place value revision.
