Literacy Two

Monday 21st September, 2020

LC: To use different sentence structures.

LC: To write the first section of a non-chronological report.

Today, you are going to write your non-chronological report on the Roman Empire using your plan created last week. 


Miss Hall and Mrs Harper will be modelling a non-chronological report on the Roman Army in order to help you.


You can also use our key report text: Roman Towns to help you too. 

In lesson two, we are going to write the first section of your report.


Remember that report information can be presented in any order so it is up to you which of the topics you report on first. 


You will have to leave enough space in your book for your diagram or text box if you have chosen to link one of these features to this section. 

Now it's time to begin. 


You will need to look at your new text first section in your boxed-up plan.
