Remembrance Day Information Reports

Our writing focus this block is on information reports. We decided to write an information report on Remembrance Day so we could find out more about it before the 11th November this year. We came up with headings and researched information using our iPads. We used our skimming and scanning skills to help select key information and pick up the main information from a page. Using our notes, we wrote and redrafted our reports and we are very proud of the results. We also looked at some literature based on World War 1. We found out about the poem Flanders Field by John McCrae and read a story by Michael Morpurgo. We were inspired by the poem Flanders Field and created some art using the poem and image of red poppies.
