Third class were focusing on the writing genre of reports. We started off by reading various reports and labeling the different features of the reports. Next, we wrote a report together based on school:
We then had to write an individual report on the famine to coincide with our class novel Under the Hawthorn Tree. We started off by planning which involved a lot of research using different sources.
Then, we started our draft using the information gathered from our research. Following this the children edited their report and completed their redraft. When they (and their teacher) were happy with their redraft they published their report and added diagrams.
