    Hi all
    Tomorrow I want my Year 5 class to write a 'blind' assignment based on our topic in literacy this half-term, non-chronological reports. We always start each term off with a writing assignment to base targets on and they already have someknowledge of NC reports from over the years.
    Can anybody suggest any good report writing I could get them straight on with with little teaching, perhaps something to do with their holidays? I'm feeling uninspired in the ideas department!
    Thanks

    The
    Amazing Creature



    <font style="font-size:11pt;" size="2"> Imagine
    that you have seen an amazing creature.

    You have no idea what
    it is.</font>


    <font style="font-size:11pt;" size="2"> Your
    task is to write a letter to the Information Service
    at the
    Natural History Museum.
    </font>


    <font style="font-size:11pt;" size="2"> The
    purpose of your letter is to describe exactly what you
    have
    seen so that it can be identified.</font>




    <font style="font-size:11pt;" size="2"> Think
    about what the Information Service needs to know.</font>


    <font style="font-size:11pt;" size="2"> You
    might want to include:</font>


    ? the appearance of the creature &ndash;
    its shape, colour, size and features;


    ? information about its behaviour &ndash;
    how it moves, what it eats and if it is friendly;


    ? any other details which could be
    useful to the Information Service.
