We are learning to show our knowledge of Titanic and to                                                                     We are learning to newspaper writing skills, using the same star steps we used for our report on the building of Titanic.

Your challenge is to use your knowledge and skills to become a newspaper reporter.

The  editor of your  newspaper has asked you to write the front page story, telling the nation about the sinking of Titanic on 15 April 1912. You need to tell the readers about the tragic events of that night, the facts, figures and information they would want to know.

Your deadline for your report will be Friday 22 May at 11.30am.

STAR STEPS for a successful newspaper report:

  • HEADLINE– capture the reader’s attention.
  • BYLINE– your name.
  • LEAD-briefly explains what happened.                                                                                                           If the reader stopped reading after the LEAD, they would know, roughly                                     what had happened.                                                                                                                                 Most important information comes first.                                                                                             This first paragraph should answer as many questions as you can.                                                       WHO?   WHAT?    WHERE?    WHEN?   WHY?    HOW?
  • BODY– add more information and detail.                                                                                                         Include background information, evidence and facts.                                                                       Include a quote from an expert or a witness.                                                                                     Continue to write in order of importance.                                                                                            Keep you sentences short and punchy to engage the reader.
  • TAIL–  give the reader some extra information.                                                                                              Include a link to our newspaper report about the building of Titanic.                                            Give a final quote from a witness or an expert.

When you have completed your newspaper report,  upload it onto TEAMS.

I will read your report and will look forward  to giving  you feedback.

Ice-rescueThe following activities should only be completed with adult permission and supervision.

Try this activity from Science Sparks: Place a small plastic toy or figure into a plastic container and fill to almost the top with water.  Put it in the freezer until the water is frozen. Remove and leave to loosen for 5-10 minutes and tip it out onto a plate or tray.

What happens when you pour a little bit of warm water onto the ice?                                          What happens if you put salt onto the ice?                                                                                         What do you think would be the fastest way to rescue your toy from the ice? What could you do to find out?                                                                                                                                                   Are bigger toys easier to rescue from the ice than smaller toys?
