Writing a News Report

Overall rating 3 out of 53 (3 ratings)

Powerpoint that outlines an activity where one group of children (newsroom based reporters) first watch a short news item (the Japan earthquake March 2011) then have to retell details to another group (reporters on location) to enable them to "go live" with a news report which they share i More…n front of the class or another small group. After that they go on to write their own news report and publish in Fodey - a newspaper clipping generator. Haven't tried this out yet - writing for next week!
