Morning Year 5! This week we will be writing biographies!



Ask an adult to test you on the spellings from last week. Then find the new spellings from the spellings folder and write each one 5 times.


Here are this week's spellings:


  1.  re-examine
  2.  co-operate
  3.  re-enter
  4.  re-elect
  5.  re-educate
  6.  co-ordinate
  7.  get-together
  8.  mother-in-law
  9.  deep-fried
  10.  runner -up


Below are two documents that contain biographies about Usain Bolt and J.K. Rowling.

1. Choose which person you would like to do a comprehension on.

2. Within the document is Challenge 1, 2 and 3.

3. Scroll down to find the challenge you would like to complete. Look at the bottom left hand corner- one star means challenge 1.

4. I expect most of you to be able to complete challenge 2 and 3.

5. Complete the answers in your home-school book. 

6. The answers are also in the document so try not to look at them until you have finished! Please self-mark.
