Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at non-chronological reports. Today we are going to be identifying the  features of non-chronological reports.

What is different about these two texts?
Do you know any differences between fiction and nonfiction texts?

Let’s read a page for this book.

Here is a PDF version Football

 

Is the information given, true or false?

Which tense has it been written in?

What do we class this language as?

Is it written in first or third person?

Certain words such as ‘spectacle, accurate and powerful’ give this report a more ‘formal tone’! – We know all about having a formal tone from our persuasive writing the other week. 
Let’s have a look at the features of a non chronological report.
.
Here is a PDF version – Features of a non-chronological report.
So the features of a non-chronological reports are…
Topic Title (The subject)

Stilling Time

This week is mental health week and in our current situation it is important to feel happy and make sure we are all still aiming high and smiling. This week along with stilling time activities I will be posting some different activities that you can try.

 

Think about all the things that make you feel happy. We are all different, so we’ll all have different ideas about what happiness means to us. Create a list poem using the lines below. You can then add illustrations around your poem. 

Happiness is ….Poem

Have a dance to this song. 

ICT

Have a look on Purple mash at your 2Do’s. We have set another typing activity for you.

PHSE

What is it like to feel safe?

What does unsafe or uncertain feel like?

What do we think that we have to keep safe from?

 

Think about these different situations. Think are they high risk, medium risk or low risk?

  • Crossing a busy road
  • Drinking from an unlabelled bottle
  • Playing near a railway line
  • Singing in front of the whole school
  • Playing in the school rounders / netball / football team

This is the risk robot, you can use this to help you think about dangerous situations.

Think – what is the situation, what is the level of risk? – How can I make the situation safer? – What is the risk level now, high, medium or low?

Here is an example

  1. What is the situation? Crossing a busy road
  2. What is the risk level? May be high because of the chance of being hit by a vehicle. Traffic may be moving too fast to cross safely.
  3. How can I make the situation safer? Cross at a zebra or pelican crossing; cross with an adult; wait until there are no cars coming; cross at a bridge or a subway.
  4. Which of these would be the safest? Why?
  5. What is the risk level now? Depending on what action you have chosen it may now a medium or low risk.

I would like you to think about these situations again. Using the risk robot can you say what the risk level is and then how you could make that situation safer.

  • Crossing a busy road
  • Drinking from an unlabelled bottle
  • Playing near a railway line
  • Singing in front of the whole school
  • Playing in the school rounders / netball / football team

Remember the risk robot as it can help you for the rest of your lives, in any situation, what is the risk level? How can I make it safer? What is the risk level now?

 

Have a great day everyone and ill see you tomorrow for our google meet. Keep smiling
