Year 6 English – Biographies
Friday, June 9, 2017
In year 6 English class we have been busy researching and writing about famous explorers. The students used iPads to research specific details about their assigned explorer. After several days of research the students wrote the first draft of their biographies.
While writing their biographies they concentrated on correct use of punctuation, capital letters, and sequential order. Through writing their biographies the students learned editing skills. The students will use these skills in the future to improve their speaking skills through an oral presentation.
