Children in Y2 are learning about pirates – this theme is included in our writing. 

Next week we are writing a non-chronological report about pirates. A non-chronological report has a variety of features including:

  • An introductory paragraph
  • Sub-headings for each paragraph
  • Usually written in past tense
  • Pictures of the subject
  • Captions or labels
  • Diagrams with labels

To help children with their writing they could find out extra information about pirates such as; ‘where do pirates live?’ ‘what do pirates eat?’ ‘fabulous facts about pirates’, ‘what made pirates so memorable?’ and ‘pirate code and beliefs’
