Week 3 - Writing
L.O. To write a non-chronological report about a yellow-spotted lizard.
Please look at the video in the video resource centre for a full explanation.
This week you will spend 4 sessions of 30 minutes writing a non-chron. report.
Session 1 – brainstorm lots of ideas about what you think a yellow-spotted lizard might be like. What does it look like? What features does it have? Where does it live? What does it eat? What defenses does it have? Etc
Session 2 and 3 – Write a short paragraph for some or all of these subheadings:
Appearance, habitat, diet, defenses, family group/having their young
Create your own sub-headings if you wish.
Remember to stay in 3rd person and remain “factual”.
Read through your writing – does it make sense? Is all punctuation correct?
Session 4 – Present work in an interesting manner with pictures and/or diagrams where appropriate. (We did non-chronological reports with Ancient Greece) See examples in week 3 writing folder.
