The Great Fire of Allerton

This week we have been recounting the events of our own fire and writing newspaper reports.
This has been a complete change from our previous diaries, which are all written in first person. The newspaper reports are in third person and tell us information about the event. We even wrote our own headlines to grab the attention of the reader.

To help us write our own reports, we used this example. First, we looked for different features of a newspaper report including:

– headline
– a photo
– caption
– a quote

This helped us to know what we would need to include when we wrote our own newspaper reports. 

Below are some examples of our reports from Kareem, Daisy and Valerio.
