Teach children how to write engaging non-chronological reports with this KS2 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, showing WAGOLL (what a good one looks like), and a collection of images of mythical creatures to inspire their own non-chronological report writing.

This primary resource includes

  • 2 report model texts: Cyclops and Pegasus
    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 adverbials that pupils can use in their own writing.
  • Report research sheet
    Pupils can record information about a mythical creature using the research sheet to begin to organise their ideas. A blank copy, without the questions, is also included so that pupils can research other topics to create non-chronological reports (eg animals, countries, biomes, a religion).
  • Report writing plan
    This worksheet allows pupils to plan out their non-chronological report text, using information from their research sheet.
  • Mythical creature images
    These can be used to spark pupils’ imaginations when writing their own non-chronological reports about mythical creatures. They could use one of the mythical creatures on the cards or design their own creature for their writing.
  • Writing frame
    The writing frame 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.
