To write the final paragraph of newspaper report

In this lesson, we will start off by thinking about what would be happening in the current situation after a major event. What tense would we be speaking in when we are talking about something that is happening now? The children will be guided through the use of a sentence scaffold to say something about the pictures in the present tense. We will then write a sentence in the present tense. Next, we will look at the success criteria for the lesson. Then we will look at the planning from the previous lesson to base the final paragraphs on. The teacher will model some shared writing before leaving the children to write their own versions. At the end, we will read through the final paragraph of the newspaper report.
