To retrieve information from a non-fiction text (Part 2)

In this lesson, we will be starting off by practising writing sentences from notes. There will be an example of some notes about Charles Darwin which will be turned into modelled sentences. After that the children will have a go at practising turning notes into sentences. In the main part of the lesson, we will recap how we collect information and choose the best way to record information that makes sense to us individually. Then we will look at some non-fiction texts about Charles Darwin, but this time focusing on the last two sections: Voyages and Discoveries. From the information we have read, we will make notes under those two subheadings.
