Paragraphs parties! Football, Space, Anne Frank,  Group and order infromation around a theme

Paragraphs parties! Football, Space, Anne Frank, Group and order infromation around a theme

These are fun and engaging whole class activities about organisation within a paragraph. Using a non-fiction context (information about football/space/Anne Frank) pupils go to a paragraph party. They have to work out who is hosting the party (the topic sentence), who is the uninvited guest (information that doesn’t belong) and various other activities. In short, these are lively and memorable ways of exploring non-fiction paragraphs.
