  • LO I can write a short biography about a famous magician.
  • Using the research that you carried out yesterday, today you are going to write a short biography about a famous magician.
  • A biography is an account of someone’s life written by someone else. Your writing should detail key parts of your magician’s life.
  • Please type this piece (you do not need to write as well) and hand it in on the assignment on Google Classroom.
  • It would be great if you could include some pictures and make the biography look appealing to read as well!

  • LO I can write out a recipe for cooking Ancient Egyptian food.
  • Using the research that you carried out last week on Ancient Egyptian food, please find and write out a simple recipe for one item of food.
  • You might choose bread, a stew or sweet cakes, or another item of food that they ate in Ancient Egypt.
  • You need to find and copy out a simple recipe in your Home Learning book.
  • Please speak to your adults and ask if you could get the ingredients in preparation for next Friday’s DT lesson, when I would like you to have a go at cooking these.
  • I also attach a powerpoint with a lesson detailing the steps of making Egyptian bread. If you cannot find any simple recipes of your own, please follow the instructions on this.
