This week we start our new unit of writing about non-chronlogical reports. You can watch the video here to help you to understand what a non-chronological report is:
To link with our topic work this term we will be writing a non-chronological report about ourselves this week! When writing in KS1 we always encourage the children to say what they are going to write first out loud before writing it down. We always have our sound charts to help with spelling too. As a general guide these are what we would expect to see in the children's writing.
that go below the line such a g or y).
Today we are going to find out what a non-chronological report is. Read the report about Guinea Pigs below. Talk about the text.
Challenge 1 : Can you remember 3 facts that you learnt about Guinea Pigs when you read this report?
Challenge 2: Can you find the introduction? What do you think the introduction is for? Why do you think this might be important in a report? Find the sub-headings: What do you notice about the types of sentences used? Why do you think they have chosen to use that type of sentence?
Here is another non-chronological report example. Read it together and see if you can spot the features again (look back to yesterday if you have forgotten what you are looking for!
We are going to start thinking about writing our own non-chronological report. We are going to write a report about ourselves. What title and sub-headings do you think you might have in a report about you?
Here are my ideas:
Title - I think I'm going to use the title "All about me!".
Subheadings- In my report I think I might use the subheadings:
"My family" . I could tell you all about the people in my family.
"My Pets". I could tell you about the pets I own and what their names are.
"My Hobbies" I could tell you about the things I like to do!
We are going to write our non-chronological reports. Each day we will write a part together. You will see Mrs Smith's work and then you can have a go at your own. Use the presentation below to help you. You will need your plans from Tuesday!
We can't wait to see your reports!
