    • Hi Siddra. Well done. I have made a few corrections, removing words (the ones with lines through) and added some capital letters for Tudors (in bold).

      Also, your sentence:
      “There was not enough places for the poor people to work because there were lots of people and not enough places for people to work in this time.”
      This is repetitive as it says the same thing twice. Can you please rewrite the sentence.

    • I think you have misunderstood the task Ellie. You needed to use a dictionary to define the words in the list, not use them in an introduction. Silver challenge is to write an introduction. You have tried really hard but your sentences don’t make sense. Work at trying to define the words first.
