Writing

 

Last week we learnt about how a non-chronological report is structured. So this week I'd like you to write a non-chronological report about something you really like. It can be anything! Just make sure it's something that you will be able to write a number of facts about. So for example you might choose to write about space, or a favourite football club or even a pop star! Just make sure the layout is correct.

 

This doesn't need to be massively long (at least a page), but needs to include at least 4 facts, fully explained, each in their own paragraphs.

 

Challenging bit:

 

You will need to use brackets in your writing to include extra information (such as dates or just interesting facts) in your work.
