Literacy Focus: Try writing a newspaper.

Today we want you to have a go at creating your own newspaper article. You can choose whatever story you like - but I've included some mystery images that you could make up a story about. Visit Wednesday's lesson to remember what features you need. 

When you are writing your own newspaper article:

  • Make your headline short and snappy.
  • In the first sentence sum up what the story is about.
  • Write your report in the third person and the past tense.

  • Use a photo with a caption to give the reader more information.
  • Fill your newspaper report with both facts and opinions. Facts give the reader all of the information they need by using the 5 Ws.
