Monday 6th December

L: to know what the features of a good biography look like

1) Read the text.  It is an example of a biography for the author, Roald Dahl.


2) If you have a printer, print out the text and underline all of the 'ISAWAWABUB' and 'FANBOYS' conjunctions in the text.  If you don't have a printer, list them or say them out loud. These are the conjunctions that we will be looking to read in your work when you write your own biography.

Tuesday 7th December

L: to write in the style of a biography about '_______________________'.

In school, you will have been working on a plan for a biography about a real person or imagined fictional character of your choice. Unfortunately you will not have access to your plan in your English book for remote learning.  You can either start your plan again using the blank template or use the plan I have provided to write about the fictional character of Greg Heffley.

You can type or hand write your biography. 


  • It should have 7 paragraphs with sub-headings (use the plan)
  • Each paragraph should have at least 3 pieces of information about your person in it. 

MILD - You should extend your sentences using the 'I SAW A WABUB' conjunctions. 

HOT - You should extend your sentences using the 'I SAW A WABUB' and 'FANBOYS' conjunctions.

FLAMIN' HOT - You should extend your sentences using the 'I SAW A WABUB' and 'FANBOYS' conjunctions. You should add extra detail to your 3 pieces of information.
