Pie Corbett’s non-fiction: Unicorns – non-chronological reports for KS2

What's included?

Guide for teachers containing the source story and 9 activity ideas, plus a PowerPoint presenting the story for use with interactive whiteboards

Key Stage



Years 3-6


Focus your class on the skills of producing non-chronological reports with Pie Corbett’s fantastical, mythological beasts…

This resource features Pie Corbett’s original non-chronological reports on two mythical types of unicorns, the Storm Unicorn and the Frost Unicorn, describing what they look like, where they live, where and when they were last sighted and so on.

Once they’ve read the report, children are asked to write their own non-chronological reports 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’.

This download contains:

  • Guide for teachers: Containing the source story and 9 activity ideas
  • PowerPoint file: Presenting the story as a series of 9 illustrated slides, for use with interactive whiteboards
