Welcome to Year 6!

Literacy Focus: Biography

In preparation for Black History week, Leopards are focusing on writing a biography on Nelson Mandela for Literacy this week. In today’s Literacy lesson, the children were given a text based on Nelson Mandela and were asked to find out what their ‘opening statement’ would be.


  • Opening statement introduces the subject, and explains why he/she is known
  • What was Nelson Mandela known for?
