This week in our English we are looking at information texts. Have a look at the penguin text and the links to videos about penguins. Can you gather information about penguins and put the facts into full sentences?
Think about organising your facts under 4 different subheadings: What do penguins look like? Where do penguins live? What do penguins eat? Other interesting information.
What information do we know which we can put into these?
Use the facts about penguins to put together an information sheet all about penguins. Below are some key features of a non-fiction information sheet to help you structure your page.
Features of a non-chronological report
The features of Non-chronological reports should include some of the following:

- Third-person pronouns and a formal tone
