In English, we will spend two days reading and comprehending the text; one day on the grammar focus and two days planning, writing and editing a text.
Text – Biography: Captain Tom Moore
Grammar focus – parenthesis
In your biography, you may want to add extra information to a sentence. You can use parenthesis for this (in either brackets, dashes or commas). The sentence MUST make sense if you were to remove the parenthesis. Try to avoid using just one of the three options – it’ll keep your work interesting!
Write a biography. It could be about someone famous, someone in your family, or just someone you know a lot about! A biography is a non-fiction text, so the information included should be factual.
What I’m Looking For:
- An introductory paragraph briefly outlining the life of the person you are writing about
- Subheadings for different stages of their life (eg. Early Life, Education, Family Life, Work, etc). These should be in chronological order
- Specific facts about the person
- Parenthesis to add extra information
- Writing should be in the past tense, and the third person
Resources to help:
Children should spend 20 minutes at least three times per week using Reading Plus.
