English - newspaper articles

In English we have been learning to write newspaper articles.

We have learnt that a newspaper article contains:

  • A bold, eye catching headline.
  • The reporters name.
  • Written in 3rd person.
  • Written in past tense.
  • Introduction with the 5 W's (what, where, when, who, why)
  • Information about events in chronological order.
  • Quotations using direct speech.
  • A conclusion paragraph explaining what might happen next.
  • Picture with a caption.
