This non-chronological report gives information about famous pets – from pets who have famous owners or who star in books and films, to pets who have earned their fame through brave deeds.

The text can be used as a model for writing simple information texts and reports, and for exploring the difference between fact and fiction.


Shared teaching and learning

Before reading

  • Ask the children what famous pets they can think of. List their answers.
  • How might you sort your list? Could you group the famous pets by animal type, or the reasons why they are famous (eg, they have a famous owner)?
