It is time to read more of our class reader ‘Holes’ - what will happen next?
Today we are going to start writing our reports about the famous Highwayman, Dick Turpin.
What could the title of your report be? Here are a few ideas:
- Stand and Deliver! The life of Dick Turpin
- Dangerous Dick Turpin - Criminal and Highwayman
Today we need to start our reports by writing an introduction.
What is the purpose of an introduction? To explain to the reader what the report is about. It should engage the reader and make them want to read on, without giving away too much information!
Task: Write your introduction to your formal report about Dick Turpin (on Google Classroom). Below is an example to help you get started:
