In our school we are teaching a different genre of writing each day. I am concentrating on the non fiction and need to make sure I'm covering all possible genres for my Year 5 class. I know there are basically 6 (recount, report, instructions, explanations, persuasion and discussion) but am getting lost in the subsections of this e.g. formal and informal letters, persuasive adverts/posters etc. Does anyone have a definitive list which shows all options? Help!
