  1. I have done a fact file in my book on Katherine Johnson who I really like learning about. I found that she died this year, age 101. That made me sad but I was pleased she had a good life with her 3 girls.

  2. All About Malala Yousufzai
    Malala was born in Mingora, Pakistan on July 12,1997.
    Malala’s father worked at a girls school.
    Then the Taliban banned girls from going to school.
    Malala spoke out that girls should go to school.
    In October 2012,a masked gunman shot Malala on the left side of her head.
    Malala woke up 10 days later in a hospital in Birmingham,England.

  3. I chose to look at beatrix potter as I like reading her stories and watching Peter rabbit on t.v. I also have a collection of the beatrix potter 50p coins.
    I found out that she was born on 28th July 1866 and died just before christmas on 22nd December 1943.
    I found out she liked to paint and wrote 30 books she also lived on a farm and had lots of animals. Peter rabbit was about her pet rabbit.
    I couldn’t find any awards but you can get a beatrix potter award now for doing hood things.

  5. I chose Beatrix Potter because I wanted to find out more about her.
    She was born in South Kensington, London on 28th July 1866 and her family had lots of money so she had a great childhood. She was 14 when she started to keep a diary about places that she had been to and she would also draw pictures in this to.
    They had lots of small animals growing up and she had a bunny called Benjamin Bouncer. I have 3 bunnies at home called Oreo, Whiskers and Snowy!
    She loved to paint and to write and is famous for bringing all her small animals to life through her stories.

    The film was awesome! I loved watching it with my family.
