‘King’ Cromwell? – Biography Writing Frames

The big task in ‘King’ Cromwell? is for pupils to research, plan and write their own biography of Oliver Cromwell. These worksheets are designed to support their work by providing a structured writing frame for each chapter. You can download them onto your school intranet and, if appropriate, customise them to suit the needs and abilities of your pupils.

The Certificate is a colour version of Worksheet 28 in the TRB, to be awarded to pupils who have completed their biographies successfully.
