Is this for GCSE level? If so, you could always mention the 4 zones of Germany and how the 3/4 capitalist control of Berlin (West) had ideological differences to the communist (East). The ideological differences played a major factor in the beginning of the Cold War.
The Long Telegram and Novikov Telegram also significantly increased tensions as they made each country suspicious of one another, resorting to secret intelligence.
The war losses meant that Stalin felt as if Britain and USA’s army were prioritised due the the difference in war losses (USSR lost 20 million, whereas USA lost 297,000 and Britain about 370,000).
In 1947, the Truman Doctrine financially supported Greece and Turkey in the hopes of containing communism.
The 1948 Berlin Blockade, although short-lived, made the Soviet’s seem aggressive and the Capitalist Allies seem heroic.
And finally, the 1949 official separation of East and West Berlin proved any attempts to reunite Berlin was futile, and this culmination of disagreements resulted in the Cold War.

Feel free to pick 3 of these (supported with more detail and explanation than what I’ve just done).
