As we are linking our English work to our topic work over the next couple of weeks, we are going to focus on a man named ‘Titus Salt’ this week. We will complete different reading and writing activities over the next 3 days before we come to write a newspaper report on Thursday. All the information you gather on Titus Salt from the activities will help you write your newspaper report.

Today, I would like you to read the biography about ‘Titus Salt’ and then answer the comprehension questions. The biography gives you lots of facts about Titus and what he did which will help you in your topic lesson today as well.  Mrs Corcoran
