Recount A recount tells you about something that has happened in the past. It may include personal opinions or comments. Eg letters, diaries, newspaper articles and news reports.

Instructions Instructions tell you how to do something in a step by step way with imperative verbs and clear instructions. Eg instructions for a board game, building models, recipes, directions, how to repair something.

Non-chronological report Non-chronological reports give facts about a subject eg encyclopedias, information books, posters, leaflets and travel guides. Explanation

Explanations tell the reader how or why things happen or how and why something works eg leaflets, posters, manuals, letters, diagrams and information books. Persuasion Persuasive writing will

try to influence the way someone thinks about a person or subject eg advertising posters, articles, leaflets and SPAM email. Balanced argument/discussion Both viewpoints are given and the readers

are left to make up their own mind eg newpaper articles, newspaper letter pages, magazines, information leaflets and posters. Story Introduce characters and setting.

Build up to the characters doing something. Problem Resolution Ending CHECK YOUR WORK Leave some time to read your work to yourself and you will

probably see any mistakes you need to change. Remind yourself of the VCOP things you havent used yet! Well done If you can work at a steady pace and think about your writing in

the planning time and before you write you should do really well!
