Day 2 and 3 Biographies

Hi everyone! Having spoken to Mr Gamage, I may have given you too many tasks to do yesterday. Therefore, I have decided to give you an extra day to complete the activities from yesterday and today. As a result , there will be no Literacy blog tomorrow. Yesterday, we read through David Beckham's biography. Below are the answers to the true and false statements.

Next, read the information on the pages below. When, you have finished reading them ,watch the video.
