We have also looked at non-fiction books this term to find out information about Ancient Greece. We have been recapping the key features of writing non– chronological reports such as headings/ sub-headings, paragraphs, technical vocabulary and how to write in the present tense. This information has been used to help us write non-chronological reports.
