In the last couple of weeks in English we were making our own poems and we were reasearching about some very nice poets like Karla Kuskin.
Now, in English we are learning about biographies. Biographies are information about some famous people like Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton and so on. Biographies don't have to be about a writer or a singer only it can be about any famous people or someone who is very important to the world for some reason.
They are normaly written after the people died but there are some biographies about people who are still alive. Biographies are always written in the past tense. They have to answer the 5W's and 1H. Biographies always tell why those people are important and they write when the people were born and when they died. They talk about the people's friends and family members too and include facts but sometimes the person's opinions too. People write biographies so that if someone is searching for a famous person and they are doing a project they would know some information to write in their project. If you scroll down you will find a mindmap that the whole class worked on together in class.
