To write a biography (Part 2)

In this lesson, we will start by recapping the layout of biographies by looking at a modelled text about Jane Goodall. Next, we will remind ourselves what we have already written in the previous lesson. Then, we will highlight what needs to be written in this lesson. After that, we will look at the success criteria again and remind ourselves what we need to include from the previous lesson. The next two paragraphs of the biography will be modelled in the shared write part of the lesson. The final paragraph, which is the conclusion, will be a modelled piece of writing, which we will analyse. Following the shared and modelled writes, children will have the opportunity to write their own paragraph.
