Week beginning 16.11.20


We have been looking at newspaper reports last week and this week we will start to write one of our own.

Think about everything you have learnt about the Titanic. We will now plan out our newspaper article as if we were there reporting on it. Using the key vocabulary below to help us.

This plan should take you two days, so do half today and half tomorrow. It is best to get as many important facts down as you can remember, it will make writing your newspaper report a lot easier. Our plan will be given to you on class dojo for you to follow and help you.


Today you will finish your plan from yesterday, if you need any help with it send it to your teacher on class dojo.



Today you will start to write your 1st draft of your newspaper report. Have a look at the questions below and see if you have answered them in your plan. Then you will be sent a newspaper report template which you can either print it and write on it, write it on class dojo or write the newspaper report in your book and upload it to class dojo for us to see. Use your plan to help you write your sentences, don't worry if you make any mistakes it is important for you to get as much information down as you can. We cannot wait to read them.
