Y6 English Homework

Due Wednesday 1st November 2017

 

After half term Year 6 will be studying Biographies in English. Over the following few weeks, the children will write the biography of a person known personally to them. Each child must choose someone from family or friends to write about. Half term homework is to begin to gather information about the chosen person and to organise (not write) the information into the following sections.

 

FAMILY/ EARLY LIFE

  • Where born, when, family, mother & father

 

SCHOOL/ EDUCATION

 

ADULTHOOD/ CAREER

 

KEY MOMENTS/ ACHIEVEMENTS

 

These facts should be in note form only as the actual writing will be done in school.

 

In addition, children need to gather extra anecdotal information about the chosen person. The children need to try to show the personality of their chosen character and what makes them tick! The aim is to give a flavour of the person and their life- we are looking for more than simple facts.

 

Photographs, pictures or documents will enhance the biography. These can be photocopied in school and returned home safely.

 

Parents and grandparents have been very successful subjects for biographies in the past. The person chosen needs to be someone children can contact while this project is ongoing as additional information is sometimes required at short notice!

Thank you for your support with this project.
