Today in Literacy I have my writing group all morning! I love it when this happens because as a group, we can really get to the nitty gritty of writing! We have looked at two different match reports from last night’s game between Ghana and Germany. One from the Telegraph and the one in the presentation below is from Sky Sports News. The pupils have vandalised one match report showing all the features they can identify. As a result, the pupils have come up with their own rules for writing a great newspaper report. These are displayed under the photo display of their vandalised/annotated work!
WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like) – Journalistic Writing on PhotoPeach
Features of a Newspaper Report:
- Introduction (Orientation paragraph)
- Facts (mainly)
- Opinions (occasionally)
- Exciting vocabulary
- A formal style
Tomorrow, we will be looking at what other people say makes a great newspaper article and we will see how accurate our features are!
