You must log on to Reading Eggspress every day and complete the assigned activity. 

Overview: 

For the next 3 weeks, we will be working on another type of non-fiction text - biographies. 

This will be linked to our work in science, as we know lots of you have already shown you are very enthusiastic to learn more about space!

 

Our learning journey will be: 

* To understand features of a biography

* To use fronted adverbials and relative clauses (grammar focus)

* To plan and write a biography

 

This week we will be planning and writing our biographies.

English:

1. Write the date (Tuesday 9th February 2021) and LO (LO: To draft a paragraph) into your remote learning book.

2. Watch the video. Remember to pause when asked and replay sections if you do not understand. 

3. Complete the activity from the end of the video: 

* Write a draft of the 'Career and significant contributions' paragraph for your biography. 

This paragraph should be written in full sentences that flow together well. They should be in a sensible order (most likely chronological) and include the features we have talked about over the last few weeks (dates, fronted adverbials, relative clauses, past tense etc.)

 

4. Remember to send your work to your class email account by 12:30pm

Your teachers will be giving you specific feedback on your draft paragraph so you can improve it ready for your final biography tomorrow. Remember, the more effort you put in today, the better the feedback we can give, and the more you will be able to improve.

Reading:

This week we would like you to spend some time working on your 'My Lessons' activities. 

 

These are auto-assigned based on your own reading level, which means they will not be specifically assigned by your teachers. You must score at least 80% on the quiz to move to the next level.

 

You should spend at least 20 minutes each day on 'My Lessons'. It is not optional. We will be logging onto Reading Eggs each afternoon and checking to see who has done this.
