We have been researching biographies and autobiographies during literacy lessons. We wanted to find out the differences in writing style that each discipline requires, as well as looking at what research techniques can be used to gather the biographical information.
Each child has started to research and write an autobiography of a person they find inspiring. Our choice of subject matter varies from famous historical figures through to pop stars and even the Head teacher at Michael Faraday!
You can listen to a couple of our Year 6 pupils talking all about their research in the podcast below.
