Paragraphs

Paragraphs help to organise your writing into key points. New paragraphs will usually start with a subheading that tells you what information you can expect to find there.

The first sentence will usually be a summary of the paragraph. The rest of the paragraph will then go on to give you facts and information about the subject.
