This week we are learning about 'Non-chronological reports'. This is a report which is not written in time order.

These are the features of a report:

  • Title
  • Introduction
  • Subheadings (Written as questions)
  • Paragraphs
  • Conclusion (Ending)              

Can you highlight the above features on the below reports?

Now it's time for you to write a report.

Choose a subject which interests you. This might be an animal, a country, a sport or a hobby.

 

Think of a title for your report.

Plan some subheadings, written as questions which you would like to write paragraphs about.

You might like to draw or print some pictures to go with your report.

 

Maybe you would like to present your work as a non-fiction book? Try to add another subheading, picture and paragraph to your work each day.

 

Have fun! We look forward to seeing your work when you come back to school.
