Good morning everyone,

It was so lovely to see all the fantastic work you have been doing at home! Please continue sending it in as I love to see it. Remember, many of the tasks have been set as 2 dos on Purple Mash.

Also, just a reminder that we have our zoom scheduled for today at 2pm. This is to check in with the children and play a game together.

Please continue to keep in touch with me via my email below. Send through any work that your child has completed as well as any questions or support you may need. I will have access to my emails throughout the typical school day.


Also, remember to keep yourself active throughout the day and take some well-deserved brain breaks!

This is our third lesson in our computing unit Writing for different Audiences.

In the last computing lesson, you watched a stimulated scenario called ‘After the Storm’. While you went through this stimulation, you should have written down notes about the storm from the different communications that were being sent in. These should have come from things like emails, twitter, phone, and newswire. This 2do has been set again if you need to look through it before starting todays task.

If you have made good notes, then make sure they are in reach for this lesson.

Task One – plan your own newspaper report using the planning sheet below (you will need to do this before you write the actual newspaper report on Purple Mash).

News Article Planning Sheet

Task Two – use the 2do that has been set on Purple Mash to write up your full newspaper report about the storm. Remember, you need to format your report correctly and add pictures, etc.

Below, there is a list of newspaper report headings that you might like to use to help you focus on what part of the story to write about.
