Year 6 have been learning all about autobiographies during our literacy lessons. We have found out that this is a form of writing that is produced by ourselves, containing information all about our lives and memories. We started off our work writing short autobiographical poems. We wanted the pupils to consider some of the major moments in their lives to date.
We have continued this work by writing some very detailed full autobiographical account of our lives. To give our writing some structure, we asked the pupils to focus upon particular themes. These included hobbies, achievements and inspirations. We soon found that these often overlapped – our hobbies have lead to achievements, which have then inspired us further.
You can listen to a snapshot of these Year 6 autobiographical accounts being read out in the podcast below.
