Lesson objective:  I can use a question mark to ask a question.


Warm up:  Can you think of adjectives to describe the picture below? Adjectives are describing words. We use these to make our writing more interesting and to give more information to the reader, e.g. old, mean. 

I would like you to think about the lesson objective and what the words highlighted in bold mean?


Question _________________________________________________________________

We ask a question when we don’t know the answer or we would like to find out more about something. Questions can start with the words – what, why, who, how and when.  

Question mark ___________________________________________________________

A question mark looks like this - ? We put a question mark at the end of our sentence to show that we are asking a question.



Today we are going to begin writing our own fact file about the William Shakespeare.


In each lesson we will have our success criteria to follow. The success criteria are what I need to see in your work to see what you are learning whilst at home.


Success criteria:

  •  Picture

Fact files need a title. The title will tell us what or who the fact file is about. If we didn’t have a title we would not know what we were reading about. In our example we had a question for our title. Here is my example:

Who is William Shakespeare?
