A template for the layout of a newspaper article. Light column lines are included for guidance. I find that when teaching about the structure of a newspaper article that some children cannot cope with remembering the layout and also writing in a journalistic way. I created this for my less able pupils but I have also used it with the full class when preparing a newspaper article for display.
Class starter/plenary to discover key features of great headlines by moving the 'magic magnifying glass'. Then an activity to explain the puns in the headlines given and a set of headlines to rate for effectiveness.

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. <br />
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.

This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
