This 3-week sequence for KS1 is a sample resource from No Nonsense Literacy, where the key learning outcome is to write a non-chronological report about an animal of interest, and uses Penguins by Emily Bone.
In it, you will use an object that pupils are interested in, such as a toy car, to talk about its features. What it is made of, who might use it and why? They should then write a report about the car, to include a diagram.
It covers reading, writing, grammar and spoken language.
No Nonsense Literacy is an online programme combining teaching sequences for writing with assessment support and guidance for all your planning and assessment needs. Download more of its resources here or on its website at nononsenseliteracy.co.uk.
