Biographies 

WC - 20.9.21

 

This week we have worked towards creating our finale piece of work - a biography article about Queen Elizabeth 1. We planned the different sections of the biography carefully thinking about chronological order and and factual evidence. After that we thought about the quality of our work by thinking of the vocabulary we needed to include as well as appropriate conjunctions. 

Spoken biographies of Queen Elizabeth I

WC - 13.9.21

In small groups, we researched, planned and presented a spoken biography of the life of Queen Elizabeth I. We made sure that we applied the features of a biography such as using chronological order, facts and dates, 3rd person, and a title.

Chronological Order

WC - 6.9.21

In English we have learnt what chronological order is. Once we understood how and why this is used, we put it into practice in our work by ordering factual events about Queen Elizabeth 1. This will help us when we writ a biography at a later date.  

Biographies

 

Today in English we have been looking at biographies and how to identify if a text type is a biography. We understand the qualities of a biography and why these are used. Over the next two week we will be looking at key historical figures and collecting factual information about them. We will refer to this information every lesson. 

The Boy Who Was Always Late - Transition Text 

This week, in English, we have been reading our transition text which is The Boy Who Was Always Late. Our first lesson consisted of drawing inference from the front cover and exploring questions, answers and reasons from just one picture. After that, we thought carefully about the emotions that were evident from the characters in the book. We used the initial feelings and up-levelled these words by thinking of synonyms that were more effective.
