Writing to inform

posted in: Year 6 Blog | 0

We’ve started our new English topic – writing newspaper reports – with some fun activities this week.

 

Yesterday, we created news reports (using green screen and a super app called Ink Dot). The aim of the session was to focus in on the formal language used.

 

Today, we got our heads around a newspaper report that we are going to be studying in detail. We mimed it; summarised it; pretended we were talking to someone we knew on the phone (and told them all about it); and interviewed the people (who were featured in the article).
