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:

  •  title
  • subheadings
  • opening/ general paragraph
  • information paragraphs
  • pictures
  • diagrams
  • captions
  • fun facts
  • examples of formal language


Activity 1

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.

Activity 2

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.

check out tomorrow’s lesson on how to draw an astronaut!
