4P’s newspaper reporters!

We have been learning about creating newspaper reports. We started looking at a book called The Mousehole Cat and identified certain features in the story.

Working in groups of four we created a scene from the text, thinking about the character’s thoughts and feelings, and coming up with an appropriate headline.  We learnt about orientation which is one sentence which explains a summary of the story, including the five W’s, which are:

What, Where, Why, Who and When.

We drafted a newspaper story and then we wrote a story based on our group’s work. Here is some of our work:

Some of us found the orientation a bit tricky but with a lot of practise of using the five Ws with other text, we managed to create our report. We have enjoyed being newspaper reporters!
