A narrative report is a document that is written down to report something in full detail. Like an essay, a narrative report discusses the events, the characters, the plot and their actions.
The use of a narrative report is to simply narrate to your reader as to what happened, who was there, why they were present and if in any case there was something that was not done that should have been resolved. When you write your narrative report, write it in a way that you are telling a story. Not too exaggerated nor too boring that people would refuse to listen or read about it.

Something to remember when you’re writing a narrative report. Details are important. Details are what makes the report interesting and worth the read. Details are what makes the readers understand and see through your point of view when they read the report. Lastly, it is still details that make the report complete. Without it, your readers may not want to be interested in what you write or say, and your report is useless if it does not give what your audience may be looking for.
As you write your report, talk about the people you have seen in the school events. Make them as if your readers would know who they are. This is to let your readers know that the following people are involved in the school activities or the school events. In addition to that, it would also make your report sound as if you are telling a story.
To make it more personal or to make it easier for your audience to know, write out your details or information by using the five senses. As you write about the events, write in a way that your readers can see through your eyes. Let them be able to picture out and to feel what you felt when you attended the school events as if they were there with you.

A narrative report is a kind of essay that you write when given a topic. From the term itself, this report is usually more than just a simple paragraph. Narrative reports are written when you want to describe something that happened and for your readers to engage in.
The elements of a narrative report are the following: your introduction to the report, what it is about should be placed here. The next one is your body of the report. This is where you can now dive right in and explain the topic you are given with information and facts. Lastly, your conclusion, this is where you end the report by giving your views and opinions.
People who hate writing reports often are forced to do something they are not well educated about or not taught properly. To be able to avoid this issue, you must give each person a chance to express themselves through writing. This is true especially among students. Give them an opportunity to write about anything they find interesting and start from there.
Writing reports can be a problem for most students, especially when they are forced to do it rather than being encouraged to do it. Writing narrative reports does not have to be that difficult, let students write what they see in the school activities and let them start from there. That way, not only is this practice, it is also a good way for students to find a good enough reason to try it out.
