English learning: autobiographies

Hi 6P!

In English this half term, we are looking at autobiographies – accounts of our lives and biographies – accounts of other people’s lives.

Look who it is! It’s Peppa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now it’s your turn.

Can you create your own ‘all about me’ poster or make some ‘all about me’ bunting?

You could think about what you look like and who is in your family

 

You could help your child understand more about your family members in a sensory way by exploring photographs and items of their clothing/objects that belong to them as well as by using ‘small world’ figures to represent family members.

 

You could make some bunting like mine below.

You could choose things you like from the boards below

 

Use the board below to practise your writing skills.

Some of you could practise copying lines.

Some of you could copy initial letters from vocabulary from the boards.

Some of you could look at photographs of family members/memories and order/write about these events.

 

What did you think of today’s learning?
