LO: To explore the features of a newspaper report.


English book, blue pen, pencil, ruler and green pen.



WAGOLL - what a good one looks like.

Indirect speech – expressing the content of statements, questions or other utterances without quoting them explicitly as is done in direct speech.

Direct speech- the reporting of speech by repeating the actual words of a speaker. Inverted commas are used to show the spoken words.

Headlines/sub-headings – they grab the attention of the reader, lead them further into the report and organise the writing.

Parenthesis – part of a sentence that gives extra information. It is usually demarcated with brackets, dashes or commas.
