Sensational newspaper reports – Holes

In English, Rowan Class have been looking at the escape scene from Holes. We looked at the different ways that the press would have covered it and decided to try and write some sensationalist articles. The tone would be either for or against the boys actions. As a class we tried to think of emotive language and catchy headlines – particularly with alliteration. Here are the children’s articles:

Class AS bits and bobs

With the family consultations on Tuesday and the Rivers Day pt2 today, this has been a rather truncated week in Class AS. Next week, we should have some city guides to share with you as the children have been working very hard on writing and editing them. Next week they have to present their guides for an audience. It will be interesting to find out what media they will use.

In the meantime, we are sharing some poems in the style of The Highwayman and Alfred the Great news articles that were completed at the end of last term and is ready to be posted.
