To write a biography (Part 1)

In this lesson, we will start off by looking at two sentences and exploring whether they make sense grammatically. Then we will recap on the layout of biographies by looking at a modelled text about Jane Goodall. After that, we will recap our planning from the previous lesson and introduce the success criteria. The first three paragraphs of the biography will be modelled in the shared write part of the lesson. Straight after each shared write paragraph, children will have the opportunity to write their own paragraph.
