Read All About It!

Senior School
29 Nov 19

In Year 4 , the children are learning in English about the technicalities of writing newspaper articles, including the five Ws: Who? When? What? Where? And Why?  They have also studied the important features of a newspaper article: an eye-catching headline, sub-headings, descriptive paragraphs, direct quotations and pictures with captions.  With their reporters’ hats firmly on, the children’s final piece will be to write a newspaper article based on the return of the intrepid explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton.  How did he really feel when his ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the ice?  Did his crew ever think that they would all make it home alive, after so many months out at sea?  There is only one way to find out… ‘Read All About It!’ when the articles are complete!  Well done, Year 4.
