There is a checklist below; try to include as many of these features as you can. Two pages is sufficient for this task. You might like to print/draw a small image to use in your biography. Remember to write neatly in blue pen and join some of your letters. You can use different colours for sub-headings and titles. When you have finished, read your writing aloud and edit.
