Home Activity 27.06.16

On 4th July  it will be Year 4’s turn to share some world news.

Your task is to find a news article and share it.  Please make it clear which country your news is from.  You could look for a news article online or in a newspaper.  There are lots of news websites for children e.g. Newsround.  

  • You may wish to find an article online and print it off – if this is what you choose to do then please write on the article to say why you chose this one.  What did you like about it?  How did you feel about it.
  • You may wish to write a summary of a news article that you have read.   You  could draw a picture to go with it.  

If you would like some help with some ideas go and have a look at the ‘World News’ board in the hall and/or come and speak to me.  

Please bring your news to school by Monday 4th July.

Kind Regards,

Miss Johnson.
