Finding Facts

I am learning to identify facts in the texts that I read, watch and listen to.

I know I can do it when I can confidently identify a fact from the things I see and hear.

Yesterday we learnt about the difference between a FACT and an OPINION. Today we will be viewing an informative text and identifying some FACTS.

Independent Task

This video is an example of an informative text. It tells us FACTS about animals.

Watch the video below more than once ↓↓↓

After watching the video above, record your 5 favourite FACTS in your lined book.

Make sure they are FACTS and not OPINIONS.


Once you have written your 5 FACTS about animals, write 5 OPINIONS about the same animals.

For example:

Cats are mammals because they have fur. – FACT.

Cats are so cute and fluffy! – OPINION

Fact and Opinion

I am learning to identify a fact from and opinion.

I know I can do it when I know the difference between a fact and an opinion.

This week we are beginning to look at informative texts.

Informative texts are pieces of writing, film or speech that only use FACTS to tell their audience about a topic. If we are using FACTS in our writing, we need to know the difference between a FACT and an OPINION.

To learn more about FACTS and OPINIONS watch the video below ↓↓↓

Independent Learning 

Today you are learning how to tell a FACT from an OPINION.

Look at the image below.

In your book list the numbers 1-10 and record you whether you think the statement is a F (Fact) or an O (opinion).

For example:

I like spaghetti better than pizza is an OPINION (O)

Cats have 4 legs is a FACT (F)
