Biography Writing - Year 6

    I'm doing this with my class this week. Does anyone have any inspirational ideas as a stimulus for biography writing? Was considering making someone up but thought this may be too similar to the 2008 writing task (we'll be using this for mock SATS). Other option is to research famous people - anyone know of good sites? Any help much appreciated! Thanks!

    I don't teach yr 6 but I know they do John Lennon in our school.
     
  4. We used Nelson Mandela's life-story. The children were fascinated and enjoyed learning about him. We used clips from youtube. I can email planning and resources to you on Monday.
     
  5. we are also doing this and have to plan it this week. please could you send me a copy of your planning too?

    Many thanks!
