Friday 17th November

This week in our writing lessons we are starting a new unit on biography writing. To maximise learning time we are encouraging the children to do their own research into one of the war poets we looked at last week. The children can choose one of the following poets to research about:

- Laurance Binyon (For the Fallen)

- John McCrae (In Flanders Fields)

- Wilfred Owen (Dulce et Decorum Est)


To aid you in your research, you may want to focus on gaining information for the following headings; Early life & family, Education, Career & lasting impact and Interesting facts.

Can you remember the ABCDE of Children's Rights? Mr Plumley will be checking if you can name them on Tuesday.
