This week, we are doing some reading comprehension work and researching Florence Nightingale, in preparation for writing biographies next week. 

Task 1 - LO: Understand the key features of a biography  
A 'biography' is an information text that tells you all about someone's life. Read through this checklist to find out the important features of a biography. When you're done, have a look at this example biography for Florence Nightingale. Pretend to be the teacher and 'mark' their work to see if they've used the key features. You could tick it and make notes at the side, or colour code the items on the checklist and underline them in the right colours when you see them in the text.

Task 2 - LO: Pick out the important facts when I research
We are going to be writing our own biographies about Florence Nightingale. We need to make sure we have the important facts ready for our writing next week. This will include: date of birth, date of death, family, job, important achievements and more. Use the text from yesterday alongside the websites and videos below to make notes of the important facts about Florence. You could do a spider diagram, bullet points or any other method you choose. 

National Geographic: Facts About Florence Nightingale
BBC: Who Was Florence Nightingale
Video: The Life and Work of Florence Nightingale
Video: Horrible Histories - Formidable Florence

Task 3 - LO: Answer simple reading comprehension questions
Choose whether you would like to do the easy, medium or hard text. Read through the text and answer the questions at the end: Florence Nightingale Comprehension.

Go to the Climate Changemakers website and work through the videos and the stories (using the Watch, Read, etc tabs at the top left). When you're done, write a message about 100 words long to explain why it's important to learn about climate change and/or how we can protect the Earth from climate change.
