We learnt that reports have a set format.
That means they have:
- A title that explains about the topic
- A general statement explaining if it is a living or non-living thing
- A description explaining what it looked like, where they are found and how they behave.
- An evaluation about how you feel about the topic
We also learnt that we must state facts and not our own feelings unless you are writing the evaluation.
So this week we read The Lorax by Dr Suess with Miss Bycroft and then wrote down all the facts we could find about Truffula trees in a brainstorm. If you're wondering what a Truffula tree is here are some facts we took from the book.
- Truffula trees have long skinny trunks
- Truffula have tufts softer than silk
- Truffula trees come in many bright colours
- Truffula trees grow Truffula fruit
- Truffula tree smell like fresh butterfly milk
- Truffula tree fruit is eaten by Bar-ba-loots
- Truffula tree's give shade to the Bar-ba-loots
- Truffula tree tufts make tufts for Thneeds
Truffula Trees Truffula Tree lived a long time ago. Truffula Tree came in many bright colours. Their trunks are long and thin. They had silky tufts that smell like butterfly milk. They once grew at the far end of town.
