Anglo Saxon Invasion Newspaper Article Example KS2

An example/imitation text that could be ideal if your topic is the Anglo Saxons and you happen to be writing newspaper articles! Written at a lower KS2 level, the text includes key underlined items of ambitious vocabulary that are likely to be unfamiliar to children (we teach these explicitly before introducing the text). This ‘front page’ also includes the familiar features of a typical newspaper - publication title, date, price and even a (period-suitable) advert!
