Into-University Focus Week


This week,  the year 6 children are taking part in a journalism focus week. 


Day 1


After some icebreaker games the children split into groups to start their carousel of activities. One team  looked at headlines and the different writing techniques used in news headlines. Another team looked at using shorthand to write a report. They then decoded a message and created their own message for a friend to decode. The third team looked at the difference between podcasts and radio broadcasts, they then practiced the very important skill of interviewing. 



This afternoon, the children received their secret mission. Their mission was to research their team name and to use the information to write a biography.
