Model text, activity ideas and a PowerPoint
Add a touch of magic to English lessons with this non chronological report KS2 resource from Pie Corbett.
This resource features Pie Corbett’s original non-chronological reports on two mythical types of unicorns:
- the Storm Unicorn
- the Frost Unicorn
It describes what they look like, where they live, where and when they were last sighted and so on.
Once they’ve read the report, ask children to write their own non-chronological reports. These can be about unicorns, dragons or any fantastical creature that captures their imagination.
Then, once they’ve become familiar with the rhythm and flow of language, they can move on to writing about different animals.
Pie includes a number of ideas and activities children can do to spark ideas about their creatures in order to build on their report. And you can even compile every student’s report into a ‘Guide on Unicorns’.
