Using your notes and research, I’d like you to create your own biography for Florence Nighingale which you can finish tomorrow.

  • Plan your lay-out: think about titles, subheadings, pictures, fact boxes, colour. Will you design it by hand or using a computer?
  • Begin writing and creating your biography using the notes you have been making. Remember to put your notes into full sentences now! Keep it interesting and factual.
