Today we are going to write the introduction and conclusion for our biography of Henry VIII. In your introduction you need to say who Henry VIII is and why he is famous, without using any facts from your main paragraphs. Your introduction should end with a rhetorical question to link into your first main paragraph. For example, if your first paragraph is about Henry’s wives, then you could say ‘What was unusual about Henry VIII’s personal life?’ Or if your first paragraph is about Henry’s early life, you could say ‘What was Henry’s childhood like?’
In the conclusion you should summarise why Henry VIII is famous and say how he will be remembered. You can start with ‘To summarise’ or ‘In conclusion’.
Well done! You have just finished your first draft of your biography!
