What a fabulous hour class 4 and parents had in the hall today. Our activities were based on biographies as we are currently writing about JK Rowling.
We read a biography about Mae Jemison (the first African-American woman in space) and then the children created fact files about characters from stories. We had everything from Incy Wincy Spider to Mrs Trunchball ( Matilda) having planned a family tree and basic biographical facts, the children wrote quotes that their character might say and then we all guessed the character based on the quote. The quotes were so good that we managed to work most of them out.
