Activity 1: Read to author profiles
Today, you are going to focus on informal and formal profiles. I have uploaded the powerpoint, which I will be using in class today, so please look at it for help.
The first thing you are going to do is read 2 different profiles by two authors: Julia Donaldson and J.K.Rowling. Once you have read both profiles, I want you to answer the two questions below:
J.K Rowling profile link: https://www.jkrowling.com/about/
Julia Donaldson profile: https://www.juliadonaldson.co.uk/about.htm
Activity 2: Informal and Formal
On the powerpoint, I have spoken about the difference between informal and formal language. I would like you to complete some activities on formal and informal language. If you need to, you may want to watch the video below before attempting the grammar activities.

When you are comfortable with formal and informal language, please complete the grammar activities below.
Activity 3: Write your own profile for your Year 7 form tutor
Today's writing activity is going to focus on your writing your own profile, which could be shown to your Year 7 form tutor. You need to think about what you want her to know about you and how you are going to write your profile. You will also need to consider how you want to present your profile. Is it just going to be written down on lined paper? Are you going to write your profile and present it in a creative way?
You need to be thinking about your audience, purpose and formality as first impressions are really important.
