Teach children how to write engaging non-chronological reports with this KS1 text types resource pack.
There are sheets to help pupils plan against success criteria, descriptions of what a non-chronological report should include, two detailed model texts and collections of facts about lions that children can use to create their own non-chronological reports.
This primary resource includes
- 2 report model texts: Meerkats and Emperor Penguins
These example non-chronological reports can be used to learn the features of this text type. They can be read and annotated by pupils, and a list of features to look for is included at the bottom of the page.
- Report writing sheet
This contains a non-chronological report success criteria list as well as examples of conjunctions and adjectives that pupils can use in their own writing.
- Report writing plan
This worksheet allows pupils to plan out their non-chronological report text. They could use information from the research sheet.
- Lion fact cards
Pupils can use these to create their own non-chronological report about lions. They could organise information using the question cards before writing their report.
- Writing frames
These writing frames can be used for pupils to present their work.
What is a non-chronological report?
A non-chronological report is a piece of text that isn’t written in time order. They tend to be non-fiction, and they give information on subjects or events.
