WALTER TULL BIOGRAPHICAL WRITING UNIT

Year 6 Sentence Stack for Walter Tull Biography

 

Walter Tull

 

Orphaned offspring, skillful striker, fearless fighter

 

During the course of World War One, Britain's first ever black combat officer passed away dreadfully when attempting to protect his fellow soldiers. This commendable leader fought to battle racist behaviour prevalent at the time when being a professional footballer and while being a soldier.

*Sara *Tameem *Tanzima

 

Finding pride in playing

 

Son of a Bajan carpenter and English mother, Walter Tull was born in Folkestone, Kent, on April 28th 1888. Horrendously, when Walter was nine years of age he had tragically lost both of his parents. His mother, Alice Elizabeth Palmer, had perished due to cancer; his father remained alive for two years after her death. One of six, Walter and his brother were sent to a Methodist orphanage in East London. Two years later, his brother was adopted leaving Walter miserable. He joined the orphanage football team and this helped him attack his misery.

*Ahby  *Tameem  *Tanzima

 

Man of the Match

 

During his training to be a printer while at the orphanage, he was given a trial at Clapton FC. In the 1908-1909 season,  he helped them to win many trophies: The Amateur Cup, The London Senior Cup and the London County Amateur Cup. His career soon took off as he joined the Super Squad Tottenham Hotspur in 1909. One newspaper reported that he was 'in a class superior to that shown by most of his colleagues.' He had become only the second black professional footballer in England's top division.

*Bahadur *Muttaqi *Sara

 

Defeating Racism

 

Unfortunately, racism was an extremely common thing at that time and Tull had become very used to verbal assaults. In a match against Bristol City in 1909, Tull had suffered a blast of abuse from the opposing fans and as a result, Spurs dropped him from the first team. In 1911, Walter was sold to Northampton Town, a team in a lower league. Their manager Herbert Chapman appreciated Walter's skills as a footballer and his colour didn't matter to him. Walter shone like the brightest star in the blackest night sky, standing out at Northampton becoming their most significant and most brilliant diamond.

*Suhana *Safaa *Sara

 

Facing a new opposition

 

When WW1 broke out in 1914, Walter was due to sign for Glasgow Rangers. Unexpectedly, he played his final match in the autumn of 1915 and volunteered in the Football Battalion; he saw being a soldier as a duty for his country. Noble, courageous, resilient Walter, survived the Battle of the Somme in 1916 where appallingly 420,000 British troops were killed but tragically had to cope with trench foot and shell shock and was sent home to regain strength.

*Safaa *Saeed *Muttaqi


Premier in the platoon

 

As he finished his isolation, Walter was notified that he was to attend officer training in Scotland instead. Although there was a blanket ban on black officers,  he had been suggested due to his behaviour on the battlefield. There he intrepidly led a division and was complimented by his commanding officer Sir Sydney Lawford in March 1916 for his 'gallantry and coolness' under fire. Aptly, he was recommended for the Military Cross for his remarkable courage but unfortunately he never received it. Walter was refused-refused parents, refused siblings, refused his football career. Refusing him of the medal would be another shot that he had to take.

*Sara *Ahby *Maisha *Tanzima *Suhana *Bahadur

 

Game Over

 

Shortly after his valiant squad of soldiers were sent to France, Walter found himself in the Somme Valley. Appallingly, while trying to support his men to evade German troops, he was shot and slain. Intrepid, incredible, inspiring, several of his men tried to recover his body but sadly failed. Walter was only 29 when he died on 25th March 1918.

*Tariq *Tameem *Tanzima *Muttaqi

 

Tenacious Tull

 

Walter had many siblings; his brother was adopted so Walter ended up all alone at the orphanage. Walter had been promoted to an officer; he sadly got shot on the battlefield. Life was a battle for Walter from the time he was born to the day he died. 

 

Q. Who were Walter Tull's siblings?

A. Walter had 3 sisters: Cecilia, Miriam and Elsie and one brother Edward, who was coincidentally, the first black dentist.

 

Q. What football team did he play better in? Tottenham Hotspur or Northampton Town?

A. Walter only played 10 matches with Tottenham scoring 2 goals, however he played a staggering 110 matches for Northampton Town scoring 9 goals.

 

Q. Has Walter received any military awards?

A. In Walter Tull's lifetime, he had not received any medals, however posthumously he was awarded the British War and Victory Medal.

I hope you all had a lovely rest over the half term holiday, now we're back with a new writing unit.

 

We will be writing a biography about Walter Tull.

 

You will also have Mr Singh planning some reading activities around him too so you will soon know lots about him.

Well done everyone!

 

It has been a weird half term, none of us expected to be teaching from home or sat learning through a laptop/IPAD etc Well done to you all for trying your best in what has been difficult times. 

 

Next half term we will begin with me taking over from Jane and doing my best to be as good (that'll be hard but I'll try!) We will be writing a Biography about Walter Tull

 

We will also be launching 'zoom' reading groups after half term for you all so look out for information on the Year 6 page at the start of term (ours will be 9.50am-10.20am - you will attend once a week and will find out which day soon).

 

In the meantime, take a well-earned break. Watch TV, play video games, chat with friends and enjoy being with family...you need a rest.

 

See you in the new term, even if it is remotely.

 

Mrs Davies

Sadly, it's our final day with Jane today. I know you have loved the lessons she has done for us over the past 6 weeks so it would be lovely if you could perhaps draw a thank you message that I could send to her. Please send a photo of one if you can, I think she has taught you so well she deserves a

BIG THANK YOU!

 

As always, thank you so much to those who submitted your writing work yesterday. I was really pleased to see some new names sending in work like Abeer and Suhana- welcome to the writing gang!

 

After half term, I will be doing my best to be the new Jane and teaching you how to write a Biography. We will be writing about Walter Tull.

Can you find out about him over the half term holiday? 

 

I'd love you to send in your work each day as you do now and I too will showcase the work and pick out some 'special mentions' for our own Year 6 Sentence Stack!

 

To those who haven't sent in work yet, it's not too late. Join our growing group of writers and send in yours tomorrow. I can then give you feedback on how you are doing and help you to become even better.

 

 

 To submit work each day send to the Y6 email account: y6@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

 

 

Please could I ask that when you send in work you

send a photo wherever possible if you wish for your work to be shown on this webpage. This is because it is easier to see your work on the webpage when it is sent as a photo.

 

Work sent in after 5pm may not get feedback until the next day and won't be included in any sent to Jane.

 

 

It's also a good idea to look at the work sent in by your classmates, it will inspire you and you will be able to better review and reflect on your own work.

Thank you so much to those who submitted your writing work today (Wednesday). We are now receiving much more work daily which is fantastic and we have been recording those who have sent in work since we were forced to close in January.

 

To those who haven't sent in work yet, it's not too late. Join our growing group of writers and send in yours tomorrow. I can then give you feedback on how you are doing and help you to become even better.

 

I have added all of the work below that I have been sent a photo/document and I have also added some inspiring work once again from Jaymee.

 

Jaymee is a child from another Primary School. I am in regular contact with her class teacher, who like me, regularly sends off work to Jane. Jaymee is her gifted and talented writer who I think we can all be inspired by. Take a look at the work she has produced in the last couple of days- it really is of an exceptional standard. I know we have writers in our school who, with a little push, could rival Jaymee.

 

 

 To submit work each day send to the Y6 email account: y6@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

Thank you again to those who submitted work to me yesterday. It really is a joy to read your work and see how much your writing has improved since December. A huge thank you to all of you who have consistently sent work in to us.

 

Remember, you are EXPECTED to submit work each day to the Y6 email account: y6@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

I have recently had a couple of children send me in batches of work all in one go. Please try and send in daily wherever possible, that way you are able to react to the feedback more quickly and therefore make more progress with your writing.

 

 

It's also a good idea to look at the work sent in by your classmates, it will inspire you and you will be able to better review and reflect on your own work.

Thank you again to those who submitted work to me on Friday. Nice to have Tariq added to the list of writers. 

 

 

Please could I ask that if you are sending work in-add your name and class, it makes it easier for Jane to know who you are if she chooses your work to showcase.

 

 You can email in a photo of it, send it in as a word document or simply type it into the email itself. I really don't mind.

 

I give verbal feedback to all those sending in work which recognises the fabulously clever things you are doing in your writing and identifies some tweaks that would further improve it.

 

 

Please send in your writing to the Y6 email address.

 

 

 Remember if you want me to be able to send your writing to Jane make sure you get it to me before 5 pm.

 

All writing that you send to me on the y6@anglesey.bham.sch.uk email I will give you feedback on to help you improve and to recognize what went well. 

 

It's also a good idea to look at the work sent in by your classmates, it will inspire you and you will be able to better review and reflect on your own work.

Thank you again to those who submitted work to me yesterday. I have to say these were my favourite to read with your fantastic selections of portmanteau (words blending the sounds and combining the meanings of two others, for example motel or brunch).

 

Remember when writing you should always take time to read back your work SLOWLY.

 

Have you missed out any words?

Have you checked your punctuation?

Have you correctly sized and positioned your letters?

Have you used a joined handwriting style?

Does it make sense to the reader?

 

 

Please could I ask that if you are sending work in-add your name and class, it makes it easier for Jane to know who you are if she chooses your work to showcase.

 

 You can email in a photo of it, send it in as a word document or simply type it into the email itself. I really don't mind.

 

I give verbal feedback to all those sending in work which recognises the fabulously clever things you are doing in your writing and identifies some tweaks that would further improve it.

 

 

Please send in your writing to the Y6 email address.

 

 

 Remember if you want me to be able to send your writing to Jane make sure you get it to me before 5 pm.

 

All writing that you send to me on the y6@anglesey.bham.sch.uk email I will give you feedback on to help you improve and to recognize what went well. 

 

It's also a good idea to look at the work sent in by your classmates, it will inspire you and you will be able to better review and reflect on your own work.

I have also started receiving work from Yr 5's which I am sending on to Jane too.

Thank you so much to those who sent me work yesterday.  However, we only had 9 pieces in which is less than our normal amount. I'd really like to see work from you all, so if you haven't sent in work before, this new writing unit would be a good time to start.

 

 

Today is the first lesson for The Lost Thing which is a narrative unit. You will be building on the skills that you have developed in Feast and Black Rock.
