Okay, so I'm going to be sitting my English GCSE Language exam next week, and I need some help with the second part of the exam.
The second part is to do with writing, and Question 5 is to do with an informative piece, whereas Question 6 is to do with writing to argue for or against something.
Does anybody know how I can layout my answer for Question 5? I've already been given a framework for Question 6, but any more help would be great :]

I'm not entirely sure if it's a sensible thing to plan out an essay that you don't even know the title of. How are you meant to lay out an answer to a question you don't know?

The question will either be to describe or to inform. It's just the context that will vary.
E.g. Write an article for the paper which describes your experience of the outdoors
Is there some sort of framework that could be made for this type of question?

This has been bugging me too, as I usually dive in without structure: I find it easier to pick an opening and get swept away by the words.
But an easy tip for a plan is to think of the place and pick 4/5 main features in it and dexcribe them in detail in each paragrph. Even draw a quick sketch!
Also, try to include humour: satire, irony- it goes well with examiners
