LO: To introduce your information text

Let’s learn a little bit more about Great Mythenden by using our imaginations!

  1. Create a beautiful title to grab the eye, including the word “Great Mythenden” if possible.
  2. Think about what the school and its surroundings looks like and create some sentences describing it, following the outline for detail.
  3. Think about a magical form of transport to get children to and from school- it could be something ridiculous or normal made magical.
  4. Plan your paragraph using the notes you’ve collected, making sure you capture what the children who go to Magical Mythenden are like as well.
  5. Write up the paragraph using your planning, following and embellishing the model provided.

I’m sure you’ll create an exciting environment- remember, this is a formal “factual” piece of writing, so try to sound serious but happy.

You can keep your sections (finished paragraphs) on separate pieces of paper to ensure that you can re-arrange at the end, if you’d like.

Good luck!
