Inspirational People: A Biography Pack - Whole School Licence
I have chosen to write about this inspirational person because...
This pack encourages learners to consider what makes someone an inspiration to others and write a biography of that same person. Using people that have left their mark upon history such as Nelson Mandela and Greta Thunburg, writing a biography has never been so meaningful. This text-centric approach will support learners as they gain key reading, writing and oracy skills.
This pack is aimed at Key Stage 2
This pack includes:
- Comprehension lessons that integrate and develop core reading skills at Word, Sentence and Text Level.
- Writing lessons that encourage collaborative learning and independent creative writing that embeds grammar in a meaningful way and helps learners understand what it mean to be a real writer, one who writes for an authentic purpose and with a particular audience in mind.
- Performance lessons that develop reading fluency and a deeper understanding of their own work and that of others, as well as help improve personal social skills and confidence.
By the end of each Unit of Work, teachers will have written and video evidence of each of their learner's work, work that can be shared with a wider audience and be assessed for moderation and inform future planning.
