History/PSHE - Inspirational People

Your challenge this week is to become research detectives and find out some information about an influential and famous person in history. You can find a list of people below, or you may wish to choose someone else - the choice is yours!


You could maybe create a biography on that person, a fact-file, an interview or even just take down some notes; the aim of this is to learn a little about someone you've not come across before and hopefully be inspired by what they achieved! 

  • Sir David Attenborough
  • Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay
  • Billie Jean King 
  • Alexander the Great
  • Greta Thumberg 
  • Emmeline Pankhurst
  • Spartacus the Gladiator
  • Rosa Parks

  • Marie Curie
  • Andy Warhol
  • Ole Kirk Christiansen
  • Steve Jobs
  • Walt Disney
  • Amelia Earhart
  • Helen Keller 
  • Stephen Hawking
  • Charlie Parker

I would absolutely love to hear from you and see anything that you do. If you find something out that makes your jaw drop with amazement, drop me an email! Enjoy blush Mrs Palmer
