This is a newspaper report ready for the Year three class to complete. We have read the story 'Stone Girl Bone Girl' and we have studied features of newspaper reports, identifying them in real newspapers and other newspaper report texts using highlighters. It is now time for the chn to write their own, based on Mary Anning finding the sea monster fossil.
For the more able group I have left this blank - they have to include a catchy heading, by line, strapline, quotes, paragraphs, caption for the photo etc.
Then I have differentiated the other groups where some have to think of the strapline / introduction, some have the strapline given, some have the heading given and some have to think of it themselves etc. All worksheets have a photo of the fossil on there. Easy to edit and will save heaps of time! The title of your newspaper will have to be changed as I have done this one to suit our school.
