Children are often engaged when they have a context/ purpose for their writing. This is a unit of plan that I use to engage my whole class and encourage and inspire the children's activities.
Children will use newspaper reports and convert them into news reports using iPads and iMovie. They will learn technical language to describe shot sizes and they'll understand why different shot sizes are used on their favourite TV programs.
This unit comes with an end of unit assessment and meets NC objectives for Computing and Literacy writing and speaking and listening. The skills learnt will enable children to create VLOGS, short drama narratives, recounts and these products all look great on school websites and social media accounts.
