WALT: Identify features of information text.


WALT: Make notes from documentary style media and information texts.


We are investigating non-fiction texts… Make jottings

 Think and answer the following questions:


What do you know about non-fiction texts?


 What features can you find identify?


Provide different examples of information texts.


Record the features of this type of text.





Think about yesterday’s lesson, What did we investigate? Why?


Today you  we are going to look at some of the issues further…

We are going to use this information to inform and explain to others what we have learnt, and to inform and explain the impact it is having on the environment, as well as what we can do to make a difference.

How could we present our information?

Who is our target audience going to be? Why? How do we inform people?

How could we explain our findings? What do we need to include? What do we know already about writing style and features?

You are going to be making notes from TV programmes  on deforestation.  

How can we make notes from TV programme?

Good listening skills, attention to detail and brief note taking, so we don’t miss any details. Think about what you know already about deforestation.  

What can you remember about note-taking? Remember to focus on key words – identify what to include and what to leave out.

Don't forget, it is important to maintain sense in the notes and they must be legible.


Now make notes about the impact of deforestation from these videos.  

You will be using these notes tomorrow to begin to develop an information passage. Also if you have other research, this information can also be used.
