Writing a non-chronological report
For the next two weeks, we will be looking at information pages and writing our own information page on an aspect of space.
What is a non-chronological report?
A non-chronological report is an information page where the information, pictures, diagrams etc can be presented in any order. Here is an example ( you will find these in your pack).
Information about non-chronological reports
In this lesson we are going to identify the different features of a non-chronological report and label an example.
Here is a list of features you may find:
- opening/ general paragraph
- information paragraphs
- fun facts
- examples of formal language
Pick one of the information pages about the Moon.
Write each of the features on a post-it note (or cut up the labels provided)
Stick the post-it or label onto the Moon page, identifying the different features.
Draw a quick design of your own non-chronological report on the Moon.
Here are some things to consider:
- The title should be big and bold;
- The opening paragraph should have big writing and is close to the title;
- The three information paragraphs can be placed anywhere.
- Don't forget to add shapes for fun facts, pictures or diagrams.
Activity 3 - (this will be continued tomorrow so check Tuesday's page)
On a double page in your writing book, design your background picture. Draw this in pencil as you will be writing over it. Remember our non-chronological report, this week, is about the Moon. You could include the Moon’s surface, an astronaut or space landing module.
