Year 3 Non-fiction Unit 3 – Information texts
Information texts (4 weeks)
- Research a particular area (based on own interest or wider curriculum) using reference materials (books, IT sources). Use library classification systems to find books. Locate, read and note relevant information. Decide how to present information and make informed choices by using structures from different text types. Work collaboratively on an ICT-based presentation which includes different text types.
- Read and evaluate a wide range of simple persuasive texts, explaining and evaluating responses orally.
- Begin to use words, pictures and other communication modes to persuade others when appropriate to particular writing purpose.
- Through role-play and drama explore particular persuasive scenarios (e.g. a parent persuading a reluctant child to go to bed) and discuss the effectiveness of different strategies used.
