This is a series of resources for learning about non-Chronological reports. It includes, texts for reading and analysis, Charts to aid planning and analysis, notes, labels and poster, and features of NC texts. They can all be adjusted to suit age groups and abilities. Notes can be used by children to practice writing texts, and then they could research and write their own NC report.
This is a set of planning frames, for a variety of biographies about a selection of people from past times. The biography text can be used to analyse, deconstruct or extend, to allow children to recognise the structure and sequence of a biography text.
The planning frame can be used to allow the children to research information using a variety of sources, so that they can them write a biography text.
These resources will help to start ideas about reading and writing play scripts. They include a planning format for a whole play, a model for beginning a play script from a known text and a poster with the features of a play script and related issues.
Children can have fun with improvisation of a dramatic event, film the scenes and look at it to rehearse and analyze what they will write. Re film and show to present work to others.
