Firstly, here's a link to an interesting resource:

This week we are looking at newspaper reports. Here is a link to an interesting news article on the BBC:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-13437279

I would like you to read the article carefully and answer these questions:

1. What three things do you notice about the headline?

2. Why is the report organised into paragraphs?

3. Can you find an example of a subheading?

4. Who is the story about?

5. What were they trying to do?

6. Where did the story take place?

7. When did the story take place?

8. Can you find an example of a quotation?

9. Why was the photograph used?

10. Why was the caption used?

 11. Why wasn’t the report written in columns?

 

Here is a link to a follow up report on the same story:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-13451965

Can you find the headline? Can you find a caption? Can you find a quotation from an eye witness?

 

Now it's your turn...

I would like you to write a newspaper report to go with this photo.

You will have to imagine what the news story will be.

Think about:

The headline (short and attention grabbing).

The caption (this goes with the photo and gives more information).

The main paragraphs of your newspaper report. You will need to give your reader answers to these questions - Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?.

Also, try to include a quotation from an eye witness (someone who was there). Don't forget to use speech marks when you report what they actually said.

Also, to help you practice using speech marks (or inverted commas), have a look at this: 
I would like you to write a conversation between the two squirrels explaining what has happened.
