Today, we are going to step away from our story for a little while and write a recount of the life of the famous explorer Robert Falcon Scott.


Let's remind ourselves of what we learned a few weeks ago when we learned a recount off-by-heart.

It was written in paragraphs for each event.

It had time adverbial openers- first, next, after and finally.

It was written in the past tense.

It had conjunctions to extend sentences- because & and.

(And, of course, it had capital letters and full stops!)

We are going to use these features to recount the life of Robert Falcon Scott from his early childhood to his last expedition of the South Pole. As you know so much about his life, you can include dates in your writing to give the reader more information.
