English - Biography
At the end of the last half-term, we met Sean Rose - a GB paralympian with an incredible story and string of sporting awards and achievements. He was an inspirational sportsman and showed us that we can achieve anything we put our mind and effort into. In class, we have been researching all about his early life, life-changing accident and subsequent achievements since becoming paralysed. We have written in chronological order, past tense, third person and included facts as well as personal feelings and quotes from Sean Rose.
