This week you will be writing a biography about your new teacher in September. Begin by watching the how to guide to remind you what you need to include. You can make a checklist to use later in the week of the key features and write any key/powerful vocabulary down. You can also add to your vocabulary bank too. 


Use the teacher power points below, your checklist from Monday and non-negotiables on the planning sheet to plan your biography. Remember if you are currently in 1B you need to look at the information about Mr Craggs. If you are currently in 1L then you need to look at the information about Miss Elias. You can also watch the meet your new teacher video form the website too.


Wednesday and Thursday

Now it is your time to shine. The next 2 days you will be writing your biography. 

Remember to use your plan, the vocabulary sheet and the non-negotaibles to help you. You can watch the teacher information again to help you too.


Free style Friday. It is over to you today - you can choose. You might want to write a goodbye letter to your current teacher (these will be treasured!). You could write a biography about yourself to help your new teacher get to know you or perhaps a diary of something you have done each day or at the weekend. The choice is yours. Have fun!


It would be great if you could keep an on-going word bank of powerful vocabulary and new words you have learnt. Just like we do on our word walls in school. This can be added to all the time. You can add new words from reading too.
