English: Can you identify the key features of a newspaper article? I have uploaded two examples of newspaper articles to the school website. Can you annotate these with the features that make a good newspaper, what can you pick out from these newspaper articles that make them a good piece of writing for a Year 5 or 6?
Some example features:
- Newspaper features-
- A bold headline, which uses a pun, alliteration or rhyme
- Clearly structured paragraphs.
- An introductory paragraph, which answers the 5W’s of the news story.
- A picture related to the newspaper article and caption.
- Direct and reported speech from eye witnesses.
- Parenthesis and relative clauses to add more information to sentences for the reader.
- Fronted adverbials.
- Varied length of sentences.
- The use of past perfect tense ‘had asked’
- Passive voice.
You may be able to identify even more features!
