Great skuas are interesting birds. Find out more about them. Create a piece of informational text or a fact sheet about them. Remember some of the features of informational texts.

  • A title which informs the reader about the subject
  • An introductory paragraph which informs the reader what the report is about
  • Use headings and sub-headings
  • Write in an impersonal style – no use of personal pronouns Use topic specific terminology and vocabulary
  • Use appropriate graphics to give additional information
  • Usually written in the present tense and the third person
  • Sometimes written in the past tense (eg. an historical report)
  • Description is used for precision rather than to create an emotional response
  • Acknowledge the source(s) of information
