Tomorrow, you will be planning and writing your newspaper report. Follow the link to recap the key features.


It is now a good idea to start thinking about what your newspaper report will be about. Here are some ideas - football, pollution, litter that has been left behind in parks/beaches, zoos reopening, sport, endangered animals and there are many more. You could make something up if you would like to. Decide what your report will be about and do some research. Find key information, facts, statistics – you might also be able to find a quote that you could include. Keep this information ready for tomorrow.
