This week we are working on writing our own non-chronological report based on a sea creature of your choice after reading ‘The Seaside Switch’ by Kathleen Kudlinski. On Tuesday you were asked to do lots of research about your sea creature. Today you are going to make sure you have enough information for each of the sections of our report but also to start thinking about creating some amazing sentences, ready to write the report tomorrow!
Miss Rowland has created a table of her information so she can clearly see each section for her animal. Follow the link to have a look!
Your job is to do what Miss Rowland has done, but with your information about your sea creature. Make sure they are in the correct sections (Appearance, Habitat and Diet) and have a go at doing some super star sentences (like Miss Rowland did in green) in your own table - follow the link for your template. If you cannot print the table, ask a grown up to help you recreate it in your home learning book.
