Week/c  30.03.20 – Writing a fact file

Objective: Write a non-narrative using simple organisational devices such as headings and sub-headings

 

Monday – Plan - Choose a ‘topic’ which you are going to write a fact file about. Mind-map questions or ideas about what you would like to find out to put in your fact file. (You could write about a famous person, place, an animal, a religious celebration, a time in history, sport)

 

Tuesday – Research - Use the internet, books you have at home or programmes to research your chosen subject. Make notes and try and answer all the questions you have written.

 

Wednesday – Write – Put together your research into ‘sections’ and write into full sentences. Make sure you have a sub-heading for each part. Check through your writing, have you got full stops, capital letters, correct spellings and do all your sentences make sense?

 

Thursday – Put together your fact file. You can write, cut and stick to create it, use the given template or use a computer to type it up. You could even make a PowerPoint presentation. Think about the layout to make it look as interesting as possible. CHALLENGE – Can you create a glossary to go with it?

 

Friday - Make a story bag. Choose a well-known story (e.g. Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk) and collect/make objects, paint rocks, make finger/stick puppets to help you retell the story to someone else.
