genre checklists for Literacy text types lower ks2

Discussion in 'Primary' started by fairydust2010, Dec 27, 2011.

  1. Hi
    Just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction? I'm looking for checklists for text types to use on our working wall when we are covering that genre e.g one for information texts, another for explanations, another for instructions etc

    Any help is appreciated
    Thanks

    well... I don't have a checklist but I'll write all I can think of and perhaps some other soul can add what I've missed
    report
    recount
    persuasion
    discussion
    explanation
    instructions
    Presentation of factual information (comes under explanation I guess) layout I mean really.
    poetry
    running out of ideas now. Hope this helps.
