Use today to finish, revise and improve your writing from yesterday.
Your task was to create the main body of text for a newspaper report. It needed to be three paragraphs.
Use the following checklist to edit and improve your finished piece of writing.
The term 'cohesive devices' refers to the conjunctions, connectives and pronouns used to link the parts of a piece of writing.
Once you are happy with your report, you can write the beginning and ending paragraphs. The introductory paragraph does not need to be long but it does need to use the 5 Ws to give a brief summary of who, what, where, when and (possibly) why the article is about.
The final paragraph is a conclusion that brings the report to an end. It often brings the story up to date or even talks about what might happen next.
Have another look at the example report to see how the writer begins and ends the report?

The following, extra, activities are for if you have time left.
The first is a BBC Bitesize activity, revising the features of newspapers.
The second is from First News and is a selection of news reports for you to sort into the different sections of the paper. Read the articles that interest you and try to spot the different features of news reports.
