Students in 3/4HT know that writing is a process. Doing our best work means that we plan, draft, self-edit, teacher conference and then finally publish a good copy of our composition. This term we have been focusing on learning about information reports.
We came to understand that before you write an information report, you need to know a lot of facts about your subject. This might mean that you need to do some research before you start. Information reports should contain facts and not opinions. It also helps if you include a labelled diagram or illustration because the reader might not know anything about what you are reporting on.
We used our inquiry research about the Age of Discovery explorers to write our own information report. We wrote according to the structure of the genre by including a title, an introduction, sub-titles for key ideas, and a conclusion.
We used our very best handwriting by being careful to use our dotted thirds correctly and tried to form cursive letters instead of printed ones. We are getting ready to learn how to join our writing!
Here are some examples of our information reports. We hope you enjoy reading them!
