I have used this resource for two years. It is incredible, from the headline prompts to the fun mock articles; my learners love this topic. What a great resource for all ages to get into newspapers.
I used this resource with a Y8 SEN group. The colourful, eye catching resources were a hit with the pupils and saved me a lot of work! Although not all of them were suitable for my class, I could use most of them and the examples were particularly useful.
I used this with my Year 3 class and they were able to really understand how to create an accurate and realistic newspaper story. It was helpful to use the templates to plan out what they were going to write. The class really enjoyed this resource!
Extremely useful pack. The newspaper examples were very beneficial when teaching a unit on newspapers.
Thank you for being so thorough!
I used this with my 5th-grade class to learn about journalism. Part of our unit was how to look up information, compile facts, and create a news story. The comprehensive guide, planning templates, writing checklists, and examples were extremely useful. The kids loved the unit!!!
Appropriate texts prove very difficult to find for a topic on News Reports, so this pack was perfect! We also had a lot of fun creating captions for the pictures in the pack- I cut them up and we used it as a carousel.
A very versatile and useable pack! Thankyou!
Excellent resource. The children found it much easier to annotate texts using your key vocabulary sheets. The examples were great and really influenced our reports on Beowulf. Thank you.
Just starting this topic and found sourcing appropriate materials a real issue, for the immersion phase of writing. This pack is great. Thank you
