Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. A non-chronological report is a type of non-fiction text.
  2. A non-chronological report provides information on a subject, person or event.
  3. Notes are used when making a plan and they are short and only capture key vocabulary and important information.
  4. Notes are not written in full sentences and do not require capital letters, full stops or commas.

Common misconception

Pupils may want to include every detail when writing their plan.

Teach pupils that a plan will help them when writing by guiding them on what content to include in each sentence. Model a written plan.

Keywords

  • Plan - a framework that writers create before they write a section or whole text

  • Notes - written out of full sentences

  • Non-chronological report - a non-fiction text that is not written in time order
