Please find attached a suggested timetable for this week. This is what we will be following in class. However, you do not need to stick to it rigidly, it is just there for guidance.
This week, we will be continuing our work on writing a biography on Charles Darwin (A fascinating man, I'm sure you will agree). If you didn't get the chance to complete the English work from last week, you will need to read the timeline and take notes so that you have a basis for this week's work. There is a planning sheet for you to use. They can be found in week 1's folder.
