This week we have a photograph of some rather interesting people upon which to base your writing!
English / Topic (by the end of January
Your task is to create an information booklet on a famous Victorian for other children your own age. You should choose one famous Victorian to write about in your information booklet. Our suggestions are: Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Queen Victoria, Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, Alexander Graham Bell, Charles Dickens, Lord Shaftesbury, Joseph Lister and Robert Louis Stevenson. However, if you have another famous Victorian in mind who you wish to write about instead, that’s absolutely fine. The information you include in your booklet must be written in your own words. You need to write 300 words or more. You should cover the key facts about this person’s life including, of course, the important things that they achieved and why they are famous. (Many of you will be capable of writing at least 500 words!) You can choose how to organise the information and illustrations within your booklet. Try to think creatively about the presentation of your work. Remember that it needs to appeal to other children your own age and should be interesting to read and look through, as well as useful and informative. If you use any books or web sites to help you with your ideas then you should list them at the end as a bibliography.
