L.O. To identify the key structural and grammatical features of a biography.


Homework book, blue pen and green pen.


Complete the ‘Start Quiz’ and record your score in your Homework book. Then, scroll up to the top of the page and click ‘Next Activity’.


Before starting, Mr Fozzard will explain his reading challenge for you – this is optional. Always ask a parent/carer for their permission to take part in challenges that involve social media.


Word of the day (synonymous) – Pause the video once the word of the day is introduced. Write the word and meaning into your book then use the word in two different sentences and find synonyms and antonyms.


Spellings - Note down the spellings, (also available on the school website) and learn them using Look, Cover, Write and Check. Choose one or more of the methods suggested in the video to practise your spellings.


When Mr Fozzard says, pause the video and go to slide 3 to read the biography. If you would like to listen to Mr Fozzard reading the text, you will need to ask a parent to help you access the video on slide 2. When you have read the text, resume the video to listen to the key structural and grammatical features of a biography.



Slides 15-20 show the tasks that you need to complete in your English book. For task 1, write the number in your book and the structural feature that it represents. When you have completed all tasks, resume the video and mark you work in green pen.


Complete the final quiz and record your score (out of 10).
