Once you have had a go, answer the following questions.
SCIENCE: - New section with the title of 'science' and LO written. If you have space under where you stared your essay last week, you can continue on from there, just put today's date in the margin.
LO: I am learning to order my knowledge of space, in paragraphs.
Today, you will be writing the final 2 paragraphs of your essay. The two sections that still need writing are
1. What is a year?
2. What is a lunar cycle.
Don't forget to develop your answers to the questions in your planning, into continuous sentences so that they form full and proper sentences.
Don't forget, diagrams are also a great way to help you explain and can absolutely be used to show your understanding as long as they are labelled. This might be especially useful for the paragraph about the Lunar cycle, to help you show the phases of the moon and why we get them.
Remember to lay this out properly with subheadings, and use your perfect presentation.
