This week, you are all writing a BIOGRAPHY. Watch the video below of how to write a biography - you might want to take a few notes and write down the important features to remind you what to include in the biography you will be writing. Then read through the written example below and see if you can identify some of these features just like we would do in class. Also identify and write down any vocabulary that you may want to use in your biography later in the week or identify words you are unfamiliar with. See if you can ask someone (or use Google, with an adult's permission) to find out the meanings. There is a copy of a features checklist for biographies at the bottom of this page if you need it!
Now you know what goes into a biography, take a look at the presentation from your new year 6 teacher below to learn lots about them! They will talk about their life, hobbies and give you fascinating facts about themselves, so that you will be able to plan and write a biography all about them. Use your features, vocabulary list and the sections on the planning sheet below to plan your biography and add what it should include.
Now you can spend two days writing your biography, using your plan and all of your vocabulary and features lists. Once you think you have finished your writing, don’t forget to read it through and check it! Could it be better? Do you need to check any spellings or change some of your words for more adventurous choices? You do not have to, but if you would like, you could write it up in best and send in a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to see them! We will then publish the photos of any work sent in on Friday.
