The children have enjoyed researching newspapers and finding other places where you can see this style of non-fiction writing.
We love writing captions, orientations, quoting people either by direct or reported speech and finding facts and opinions in texts. The children really enjoyed coming up with headlines to go alongside various photographs!
This week we will continue working hard, planning and writing our own piece of journalistic writing. Who knows… we may have a future chief editor in our midst!
