Writing a newspaper report - Click on the link below


Learn how to use the features of a newspaper report.

This lesson includes:

  • one video to help you understand the features of a newspaper report

  • three activities.


Hello Year 5, I know writing newspaper reports may be familiar to you already but I think this activity will be fun because you will be using George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl as a writing stimulus. It is also more fun when you can design your own newspaper article and draw your own pictures. Please remember to proof read your writing carefully for spelling mistakes and missed out punctuation and try hard to include ADDSPICE and two relative clauses (see photos below to remind you). Also, remember your commas at the beginning and end of your relative clauses. Happy writing today everyone! Thinking of you all and sending you a big HIGH FIVE and a SMILE!
