Hope you are all well.  Some writing to start you off this week......

Think BIOGRAPHY (or AUTOBIOGRAPHY if you prefer talking about yourself!!)

Do a little research - if you need to - then write about someone's life story. It's a non-fiction genre, but can be a bit 'chatty' if you want. It doesn't have to be very formal. You can do a real person (famous or someone you know), or yourself, or challenge yourself with a made-up character (but he/she must feel like they really lived). There are a couple of examples below. Good luck.

Examples of Biography and Autobiography Writing

Now for another EMBEDDED LEARNING check. We haven't done one for a while, so here we go....


1.  What is 32.7 cm x 24 ?

One solution

2.  Name 3 mountains and locate them a world map? (there's a link to a World map below, if you need one)


Some possible answers - there are many more!!

3.  When might a semi-colon be used in a piece of writing?

Two ways to use a semicolon:

1) The most common way to use a semicolon is to help join closely connected ideas in a sentence. These sections must be independent and complete sentences, but closely linked in some way:

‘Sandip spent three hours in the library; he couldn’t find the book he wanted.’

2) Semicolons can also be used when writing a list to make the list clear for the reader:

‘When I pack for school, I make sure I have my calculator, compasses and ruler for Maths and Science; drawing pencils, with coloured pastels, for Art; shin pads, goalie gloves and boots for PE and, of course, my dinner money.’

The semicolons are added to signal to the reader which objects are grouped together and make the overall list clearer.

Stay safe, don't drive your parents mad, look after yourselves and hopefully we'll see each other soon.
