We will be focusing on writing recounts in different forms- diaries, biographies and newspaper reports.
Below is an example of a diary ...
A biography is a non-fictional literary genre that provides a detailed description of events over the course of a person's life. It's not written by the subject of the book, but by an author who has done lots of research and knows a great deal about the person in question. An autobiography, on the other hand, is written by the person themselves.
A biography can include information about when and where the subject was born, their childhood and important events in their lives. Biographies can include information about what a person did or achieved, as well as their experience of the event in question.
In this sense, a biography includes more than basic facts about a person, such as work, education and relationships. If the person is no longer alive, a biography may also include information about when and how they died.
This fun newspaper report includes some key features that KS1 children could include in a news report.
Newspaper reports can be a great way to engage children in writing recounts and writing for different purposes.
