    They sound great ideas thanks
  4. I'm a bit puzzled - surely the fire of London is not a non chronological report.
    Please clarify,

    Have you already done non-chronological reports on minibeasts? If so, do you need to do it again for changing materials? I guess you would look at effects of heat, effects of cold, twisting, stretching etc as your different headings.
    I would say Fire of London is a chronological report not non-chronological.

    If you wrote about the events leading to and during the fire it would obviously be chronological but if you wrote about conditions that led to the fire getting out of control - buildings - weather - human error - equipment it could be in the form of a non chronological report.

    We did minibeasts for really looking and as a starting point for information texts which went into writing about animals. Want to get the non chronoligical report unit done before the second half of summer term . I am just a bit stuck for ideas as to what to base it on. The great fire of london or seaside holidays sound like good ideas.

    Last year I went to Hastings and collected leaflets and bits of information/reports about the area.. i.e entertainment, attractions, eating/drinking, hotels, beaches and transport. We looked at the features and then compared them to an online/ICT website about Brighton. There is also a Honey bee report on Primary resources which you can cut out into strips - kids put them together with sub-headings (a good starter) for an activity.

  10. We have just finished a class project on dinosaurs and so wrote NC reports about different types of dinosaurs. I've also done them linked to sea creatures before as our topic was 'under the sea'. I'd definitely try and make it relevant to what you are teaching in other subject areas.
