The fastest cars in the world.

Imagine, an invisible force pushing you back into your seat.  You hear the loud rumbling of a 1,350 Horse powered engine as you accelerate down a long straight road. You are sitting so low down you feel like you are touching the ground. Everyone you pass stops and looks at you as you fly passed. Yes, I am talking about driving some of the fastest cars in the world
Big Idea
The 1st fastest car in the world is the koenigsegg agera R . It was first made in 2012 and it was seen in the geneva motor show, if I had a koenigsegg i would order it in chrome blue with gold stripes and the price of it is $2.1million.

Big Idea
2nd fastest car is the Hennessey venom GT. It is made by Hennessey Performance Engineering.  The hennessey venom can have a speed up to 270 miles per hour. If you want to buy this car it is 1.2million and if I had one I would have it custom made and the color would be red and black.

Big Idea 3. The 3rd fastest car is the Bugatti veyron super sport. It is almost as fast as the Hennessey venom. The Bugatti veyron can reach a speed up to 267 miles per hour. If I had a Bugatti veyron I would wrap it in chrome gold and it would cost $2.7million.  

Big Idea
The 4th fastest car is the porsche 9ff gt9-R. It was built in Germany. The founder of the car is Jan Fathauer the price range is from£150, 000 to £540,000. Its runs for 450 km/hour. If I had one of these cars I would

Concluding Statement

The feeling of driving fast is like nothing else I have ever thought about. It’s like no other because of the feeling you get as you pass the car next to you, that’s why I love fast cars. I wish I can drive one of this car in near future soon. What do you think, do you want to join me? Which one would you pick?

WALT: write a non chronological report

Remember to use:
  • an opening paragraph explain what your report is about.
  • headings and subheadings for the main body.
  • an closing paragraph, recapping on what you have written.
  • Pictures, maps etc with captions to explain what they are.
Remember to use fact not opinions.

The Mighty Gorilla
Did you know that gorilla can learn sign language and are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom. They are endangered and need our protection.

What do Gorillas look like?
The Gorilla is enormous and they live to 35 or 40 years old. The max weight of a gorilla is 160 kgs. It has ten fingers and ten toes just like humans. Gorillas have a thick body and they can grow up to 6 feet tall that is 1.8cms. They have a shiny black back but the gorillas with a shiny silver hair on their back are called silver backs.

Gorillas diet
Gorillas are mostly vegetarian but some eat insects like ants and termites. Gorillas eat vegetables such as wild celery, bamboo shoot, stinging nettles and thistles   

Where they live?
They live in thick forests and woodlands in Africa. Some gorilla are even found on the side of misty mountains up over 10,000 feet.  They are called the rulers of the forest.
How do they behave?
They live in a family called a troop. The boss is the silverback and he tells them where to go and what to eat. In the troop there are a lot of females and babies. They sleep in nests and spend the day grooming and playing. They are usually gentle and calm unless they feel threatened.

I think we should look after the gorillas because they are our closest living relatives. They are kind, gentle and intelligent. We need to protect their homes and learn more about them.
