We are writing our newspaper report today. I will go through how to structure it and guide you on the features to use along with an example to show you some ideas. I can't wait to see yours! (Newspaper template below if you want to print)
Today we are learning to use the past tense correctly. I have extended the children to use the past progressive tense if they want an extra challenge towards the end. Just need their book and a pen/pencil for today.
We begin the week by recapping the features of a newspaper report. Then we look at the key information found in the opening paragraph of a newspaper report and look for these in some examples. Finally we have a go at writing our own opening paragraph about the main event in 'The Christmas Eve Tree' story.
Our final week of spellings covers 10 of the words from the Y3/4 common exception word list. In this lesson we use the online thesaurus to find synonyms for our spelling words. Then we play a game on spelling shed.
