The text structure of an information report is to present information about an object, animal, person or place. You use paragraphs with topic sentences to organise the different bundles of information discovered in your research for the NHC.
See the examples below for an Information Report titled, iPhone.
A is for Animals offers an A to Z of animals in war, from mascots and messengers to creepy-crawlies. Animals are put to many uses in war. Sometimes they have jobs to do: the horses, camels, mules, and donkeys used to transport soldiers and equipment, as well as carrier pigeons and tracker dog with their special talents. Often animals are used as mascots and pets, or as symbols on badges and flags. A is for animals also looks at those unwelcome animals, such as insects, rats, and wild creatures, that make life in the field even more difficult and dangerous.
