English Focus – To create a fact file about penguins.
This week’s English focus is to create a fact file about penguins.
A fact file is a non-fiction piece of writing. This means that it is real-life, the truth and factual – not made up like a story! To be able to write a fact file we must be able to research and collect some information about penguins. This can be done by using internet tools or books. We have attached some links to help you learn about penguins.
You will need to find out information about penguins for the following areas:
Appearance – which means what they look like
Habitat- which means where they live (their homes and the countries they are from)
Diet- which means what they eat
Fun Facts – anything extra and interesting you find out!
Once you have gathered this information you can create a fact file using the fact file template attached. If you are unable to print or access this template, please do not worry you can create a poster with the key areas on it. Remember to write in full sentences and use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.
You will also need to draw a picture of a penguin in the box under the title and label his body parts, to do this please watch the ‘learn to draw a penguin’ video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK5qAF-eRG0 (Don’t forget you can pause it as you do each part.)
