LI: To be able to write an effective end paragraph (conclusion).
Yesterday you worked on writing an effective opening. Today, you will write an effective conclusion. Look at the example of the conclusion below - do you think it is any good? If you think it is good, what makes it a good conclusion? But do you think it should be better?
A conclusion should summarise the main points of the whole report without repeating all the same information. It should link back to the whole purpose of the report and link the reader back to the introduction eg:
As a result of your journey into the unique world of the orcas you have developed a greater knowledge and understanding of this magnificent creature.
Here is an example of a conclusion:
The purpose of this report was to inform you about orcas.
Does this end the orca report in a good way? Does it link back to the introduction from yesterday? No.
Write your own conclusion that would summarise the orca report we have been looking at. In a conclusion, you can add your own opinion.
