February Half Term Homework
After half term in our English, we will be looking at writing Newspaper Reports. In a report we look to answer the 5 W questions which are:
Who is the report about?
What is the report about?
Where is the location of the report?
When did it happen?
Why has a report been written?
Over the holidays we would like the children to find and choose an appropriate newspaper to share with an adult at home. Once they have read through it, we would like them to see if they can answer the 5 W questions above and write down their responses. If you are struggling to find an appropriate article, we have included some below that you can use. We have also uploaded a useful newspaper report mat which shows an overview of the skills we will be looking at over the unit. They are welcome to bring their reports in to share with their peers when we return on Tuesday 1st March.
