Stick 'em up!

Thieves have broken into a local jewellery store and stolen priceless stock. Use imwell's newspaper report lesson to help pupils make sense of the chaotic event.

What is it?

- A PowerPoint presentation guides pupils step-by-step through structuring a good news story, from writing a witty headline and informative lead paragraph to the important proof-reading stage.

- A worksheet provides a template that helps pupils to structure their report like a newspaper front page, complete with picture.

Why is it useful?

The lesson helps pupils to understand informative writing and tone of voice in an exciting context.

What else?

imwell has also included a banner: turn your classroom into a newsroom by displaying it on the board.
