Editable Word doc

Key Stage



Year 4


This free, editable non-chronological report example on the topic of the city of London serves as an excellent example for Year 4 pupils learning to craft comprehensive introductions and conclusions and incorporate technical vocabulary.

Engaging introduction

The report begins with an engaging introduction that prompts the reader to imagine London and introduces iconic images associated with the city. The use of questions like “When you imagine London, what do you think of?” immediately captures the reader’s attention and encourages them to think about the topic.

Historical context

The report effectively includes historical information about London, providing a brief overview of its history dating back over 2,000 years. It mentions key historical events like the Roman influence and the Great Fire of London. This historical context adds depth and interest to the report, making it more informative.

Technical vocabulary

Throughout the report, there is the use of technical vocabulary related to landmarks, historical events and transportation. These contribute to building students’ vocabulary and provide a more precise description of the subject matter.

Comprehensive overview

The report covers various aspects of London, including its history, famous landmarks, transportation, cultural attractions and the diverse population. This comprehensive approach ensures that the reader gets a well-rounded understanding of the topic.

This aligns with the goal of creating a non-chronological report that informs without relying on a time-ordered sequence.


The report concludes by emphasising London as a city filled with history, culture and exciting adventures. The closing lines encourage the reader to explore different facets of the city, making the conclusion both a summary and an invitation.

This aligns with the Year 4 objective of crafting effective conclusions in non-chronological reports.
