The poster text poses a series of questions about the issue of flooding in the UK, followed by some simple explanations of the elements involved. It demonstrates a range of organisational and stylistic features typical of the genre, and introduces some technical vocabulary.
Shared teaching and learning
- Discuss weather events in the headlines. Have any happened in the UK recently? Discuss the effects of flooding as reported in the news.
- Why do rivers flood? Assess what the children already know.
Children should be familiar with the differences between narrative and non-narrative texts, and be able to identify some of the features of an explanation text.
