Task – Read All About It! Newspaper Report
I am sure that you have all been watching the news and finding out information from the government’s daily briefing. This week, your challenge is to write a newspaper article. You can decide what you want the article to be about. It might be a real event; it could be linked to the current coronavirus situation; it might be something that you are interested in; it could be about something you have done; or, it might be about a made up event. It is a chance for you to be creative.
What I’m Looking For:
-Create an interesting and exciting headline.
-Write an orientation that answers the 5 Ws? (Who, what, where, when and why.)
-Include quotes from people involved in the story.
-Use parenthesis to add extra information in your sentences. In newspaper articles, this is usually done using commas.
Use correct punctuation for direct and indirect/reported speech speech.
