We have been learning about Newspaper Recounts. The children have used a book called Tuesday as a stimulus for this unit and have been investigating the events of the night through interviews with witnesses to help them understand the timeline of the event. They then wrote quotes using accurate speech marks. This week, we started to look at lead ins using the 4ws. This is a sentence at the beginning of the newspaper recount that tells the reader who, when, where and what happened. Below are some links if the children would like to continue with this genre and write a newspaper recount on Tuesday by David Weisner.
