LG: I can create an information report

First… choose one of the fact sheets below and read through the dot points of researched information.

Mars facts

Jupiter facts

Saturn facts

Next… organise the information into subheadings and write the information as paragraphs.

Here is an example we looked at last term:

For these planet topics, you can come up with any sub-headings that you think are important. These could include things like:

  • Size
  • Location
  • Appearance
  • Climate
  • Features

Then… put your information report together, adding features such as:

  • Pictures
  • Captions
  • Labelled diagrams
  • Maps
  • Bolded topic words

If you would like to, you might want to do a little extra research to add some more information to the dot points you have been given.

Finally… you might like to audio record your presentation. Share your work on OneNote

Maths – TEACHER GROUP – Thursday

Today you will do a maths lesson with your teacher in your small group.

Come prepared with your maths book and pencil!

While you are waiting, or after your group, if you have some time, why not play another game of capture the array? The video and information about how to play CAPTURE THE ARRAY are below if you have forgotten. This is an optional activity

Today you are going to be playing a game. Make sure you have all the materials below :


Watch the video to see the game in action

Microsoft Stream


Start playing the game in your maths grid book.

Remember the aim of the game is to cover your whole page in arrays, and you only have 10 turns to try to do this. Your first roll tells you how many rows you have, the second roll tells you how many are in each row. Then record your array in your book just like in the video.

Once you have completed your 10 turns, see how much of your page you have filled with arrays.

Then, if you’re up for it, you might like to see how many turns it takes for you to fill your whole page!
