Last lesson you created a webpage. Using the webpage template you created in the last lesson, make a copy and adapt it to contain information about the school (you can choose what information you want on it)

The basic structure of a webpage

  • On the right hand side here we have the basis of a webpage. 

  • This structure is used on every webpage.

<!DOCTYPE html>

How we created our webpages

  • In the last lesson we used the very popular software called Visual Studio Code to create our webpage.

  • We looked at using the <p> tag to create a paragraph of text.

HTML tags

Headings in HTML

  • Heading in HTML are basically paragraphs with bigger text to look like headings.
<h1>This is the biggest heading</h1>
<h6>This is the smallest heading</h6>

Paragraphs in HTML

  • A paragraph is a chunk of text. If you put several paragraphs on a page you'll notice there is spacing between them.
  This is a paragraph

Breaks in HTML

  • A break is a new line in text. It's different from a paragraph because it doesn't create a space between the two lines.

Lists in HTML

  • We can make lists of items using ordered (numbered) or unordered (bulleted) lists:
  <li>Item 1</li>
  <li>Item 2</li>
  <li>Item 1</li>
  <li>Item 2</li>


  1. Look up definitions for the following tags and put them into your worksheet


Use the file profile.html to build your profile. You need to do the following on this page:

  1. Change the title of the page to your name
  2. Add one <h1> tag at the top, also with your name
  3. Add a paragraph (or two) just introducing yourself and what this website is.
  4. For example, Hello there my name is Mr Balfour. This webpage is my personal profile that I am building using HTML. 
  5. Add an <h2> tag with the content 'My favourites'
  6. Add an <h3> that says 'Hobbies' and then an unordered list with up to 10 hobbies
  7. Find a quote online and using the tag you found earlier add the quote to the page.
