In Year One we have been learning about different types of texts. We have talked about fiction and non-fiction.
We learnt that if you want to find out more information about a topic you can read a report.
Information in a report is real or factual.
We have explored different reports on bananas, potatoes and ladybugs and learnt lots of new facts.
We looked at the report structure and sorted the information into different parts.
Each report contains the following:
- Title– states the subject of the report.
- Classification– a general statement about what the report is about.
- Description– very detailed information about the subject.
- Conclusion– an end comment, including the writes opinion on the subject.
Over the last few weeks we have worked very hard to gather information about an Australian bird that we have here at St Emilies Catholic Primary School, the Rainbow Lorikeet.
We watched a short video and read some books about the Rainbow Lorikeet to gather information.
Did you know that the Rainbow Lorikeet is a type of parrot?
Did you know that they like to eat sweet things like nectar and honey?
We then had a go at writing our own report on the Rainbow Lorikeet.
We followed the correct structure and also wrote a good copy using paragraphs to sort each section.
After our report writing was complete we made our own Rainbow Lorikeet art piece.
First, we used oil pastels to create the rainbow background.
Second, we painted over this background with black poster paint.
Once it was dry we used match sticks to scratch the outline of our Rainbow Lorikeet.
They look so colourful and beautiful, just like a real Rainbow Lorikeet.
We cannot wait to show our finished pieces together at our 3 Way Interview!
