Information Reports

The last writing done this year was an information report on a spider or insect, this tied in with our Science study on Classification and our reading of non fiction texts on small creatures.

Information reports need to contain the following:
  • an opening statement that starts with a classification.
  • factual information about various aspects of the subject - description, food, life cycle, habitat etc, organised into paragraphs.
  • diagrams and illustrations to add interest to our wtiting.
  • appropriate 'scientific' language.
  • a concluding statement about the topic to finish.
