Main Task One

As you go through the PowerPoint you will need to click on the Next button to see the next bit of information (the PowerPoint may skip some important facts if you don’t do this).

Go through the PowerPoint and make notes about all the different features of a newspaper. These notes will be useful when you need to identify the features, and they will provide a good reference guide.

As you go through the PowerPoint you will be set different tasks. Complete each task before moving onto the next part of the PowerPoint.

 

Main Task Two

Attached to the bottom of the class page are two newspaper reports. For both reports, I would like you to identify the different features of that report. Use your notes to help you.

You can either print the sheets and label the features or you can simply write the different features into your Home Learning book.

Please note that for each report there are two levels of difficulty. If you struggle with reading some of the text and need support, I recommend that you focus on Challenge One.

If you want to challenge your knowledge of the features of a newspaper article you can also try to identify the features in another example.
