Students produce the front page of a newspaper acting as sub-editors. The stories, the photos and the basic layout are provided. They have to choose which stories to use, which parts of those stories to use and which photos to use. They also have to write the headlines and the captions.
Intended to be used at the end of a unit on news, this resource challenges students to select what is newsworthy and to realise what can't be printed. Remove the teachers notes at the start of the file, load it onto the network (or individual computers) and then the students can copy and paste text and photos into the provided front page layout. They have to choose which is the most important story to feature on the front page.
I have used this resource with mixed ability year seven classes. With less support, it also challenges year eight students.
The resource contains teachers' notes, instructions for students, a front page template, news stories to choose from and pictures to use. The students should not use other pictures or add extra text (except headlines and captions).

These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
