Main Task - Newspaper Article
Today you are going to write your newspaper article that you planned yesterday.
Start by watching this video to give you ideas for a catchy headline.
To get you in the frame of mind for newspaper writing, read this article:
What were the 5 ws?
Can you find one fact and one opinion in this article?
Can you spot 3 other features of a newspaper article?
Use this template to write your article based on your plan. You can either type straight into the template, or print a version and handwrite on to that.
Challenge: Include a sentence in the perfect present tense and a semi-colon in your article.
Once you have written your article, take a five minute break, then come back to it. Read it aloud - this will help you spot any errors and make sure it makes sense.
- Can you improve 3-5 word choices?
- Do all of your sentences start differently? Can you use ISPACE to improve your sentence starters?
- Have you written your article in paragraphs?
I can't wait to read all about it and I will be sharing my favourite articles on the class website. Happy Writing!
